DIY SOS host Nick Knowles has paid tribute to the son of Darren Hudson who has sadly died, reports Mirror Online.
Oliver appeared on the show alongside his adoptive dad Darren, who suffered a degenerative spinal condition in 2017 which left him unable to walk for the rest of his life.
The Hull dad was left fearful about providing for his young family of three sons, Mike, Oliver and Harvey, who were stuck in a house that was unsuitable for their needs.
On top of that, Darren was left as the sole carer of his sons after his wife Sarah tragically died on Boxing Day in 2017.
After being diagnosed with the rare syndrome, Darren was forced to share the downstairs bedroom with his severely disabled son Oliver who could have up to 70 seizures a day.
The DIY SOS team stepped in to help out by transforming Darren’s home, leaving the Hull dad overwhelmed by the support of the local community.
After viewing the show, Darren said: "Amazing. What you have done for us guys, it’s our next chapter. It’s the next step forward which is massive for us.
"Words don’t even seem enough. I have been in there and I didn’t even recognise my house. In fact it’s not a house, you have brought the home back for us.
"I can actually get upstairs and it might seem nothing to you guys but to me it’s everything. You have given me the full house back where I just had the downstairs for so long.
"It’s something we needed so bad and it couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s amazing. Thank you so much."
But Nick Knowles shared the devastating news on Twitter last night that Darren’s son Oliver had sadly passed away.
The host posted: “We @DIYSOS send condolences to Darren and family on the sad passing of wonderful Ollie who is missed and was so loved.”
Viewers were left heartbroken by the tragic news, with one commenting: “I’ve never felt more heartbreak for a family than I have just watching that episode then reading that tweet. God bless."
Another wrote: “That was possibly one of the best if not the best builds I’ve seen. So deserved, such a lovely family. Really touching. RIP Ollie."
