The DIY SOS team are heading to a Yorkshire village for 2021's BBC Children in Need special.

Since 1999, the heartwarming show sees Nick Knowles and his team of charitable tradespeople put in their best efforts to help transform homes and community spaces for deserving people.

But the Children in Need special will be slightly different this year.

Here's what you need to know about the 2021 DIY SOS special.

When is the Children in Need special on TV?

The programme will air at 9pm on Tuesday, November 16 on BBC One.

Why is Nick Knowles not presenting the DIY SOS special? 

The presenter has been taken off hosting duties for a short period of time after breaching BBC editorial guidelines in early 2021.

Nick Knowles appeared in a Shreddies advert - breaking a clause that warns “actors and artists who perform in BBC output should not appear in promotional work".

But it won't be long until Nick Knowles returns to our screens as filming of the long-running DIY SOS series resumes in 2022.

Who is the guest presenter on the DIY SOS Children in Need special?

Guest presenter and comedian Rhod Gilbert is taking the reigns for the 2021 show.

He is best known for his hilarious stand-up comedy sets and takes on bizarre and mundane things in our everyday life.

The comedian was born in Camarthen, south west Wales.

Where was the Children in Need special filmed?

This year's Children in Need special takes the dynamic DIY crew to Brandesburton near Hull, East Yorkshire.

The show will pay tribute to the amazing people who make up St Michael’s Youth Project by building an adventure campsite.

The charity boosts the quality of life for children living in one of the county's most deprived areas.

From activites to support, the youth project has two spaces: a community hub in the inner city and a patch of land for children to enjoy the countryside.

The team have just 10 days to complete the adventure campsite - something Rhod Gilbert describes as "a big challenge".

In the trailer, Rhod says: "We'll transform this patch of scrubland into a place where generations of children can escape the inner city and enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors."
