BBC One’s The Repair Shop, invited Flintshire viewers to submit cherished festive items
BBC One’s popular show, The Repair Shop, is inviting viewers to submit cherished festive items for restoration in their upcoming Christmas special.
Jay Blades and his expert team are gearing up to sprinkle some holiday magic by repairing objects of historical or social interest with a yuletide touch.
Jay said: “We are looking for items that make us remember Christmas’s of yesteryear. The items don’t have to be antique, but they must mean something to you and have a sentimental value which a repair would make a difference,” Blades said.
“The team here are incredible, and we have experts in pretty much every craft, so hopefully, we have the solution for any fix.”
Joining Jay Blades, ceramics expert Kirsten Ramsay added her excitement for the festive season, stating, “This is our fourth Christmas Repair Shop and they are some of my favourite episodes.
There’s always a magic about the barn, but there’s something about Christmas that makes The Repair Shop even more magical.”
The team is reaching out to diverse communities for the Christmas special, providing a chance to have their most treasured items transformed for the holidays.

The Repair Shop’s experts are currently filming the next series, where they continue to rescue and restore items thought to be beyond saving by their owners.
They focus on bringing priceless pieces of family history and loved, but broken treasures back to life. The next series of The Repair Shop is set to air later in the autumn.
Launched in March 2017, The Repair Shop, produced by Ricochet, first aired on BBC Two, later transitioning to BBC One for Daytime.
Since March 2020, it has also been part of BBC One’s Peak schedule at 8pm, following a successful Christmas special that attracted 5.5 million viewers. A new primetime series, alongside a daytime series, is due in the coming autumn. Spotted something? Got a story? Send a Facebook Message | A direct message on Twitter | Email: News@Deeside.com
