The Repair Shop has become a faithful Wednesday evening staple, offering us a life-affirming alternative to a throwaway culture, while celebrating indispensable craftsmanship.

Many of us have cried happy tears as upholsterer-turned-presenter Jay Blades and his talented team of craftspeople painstakingly restore discarded treasures and sentimental heirlooms to their former glory, making their owners cry happy tears too.

So far, the clever Repair Shop team have repaired everything from Olympic diving medals to beekeeping equipment; ceramic canines to a Victoria Diorama, while unearthing the fascinating stories behind the possessions.
