Nick Knowles fans have rallied round the Into the Grand Canyon presenter after he revealed a hidden health condition on the show last night (March 2).

Nick Knowles reveals hidden health condition on Into the Grand Canyon

Nick took on lots of exciting activities during Into the Grand Canyon, tackling a zipline and going 21 storeys below the surface into the Grand Canyon caves.

But it was his trip to the nearby Hoover Dam, the 221-metre structure looking over the largest man-made reservoir in America, that led Nick to make a confession about his struggle with vertigo.

Leaning over the dam, he shared: “It’s wonderful, but because I suffer from vertigo, slightly sick-making.”

But Nick pushed himself to cross this iconic landmark after declaring: “This is not an opportunity to be missed.”

Nick later admitted that the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway looking over a cliff, also made him feel “sick to my stomach, and my knees are weak”.
