Jay Blades urges fans to sign up for The Repair Shop
The Repair Shop is currently filming its new series and that includes a few specials for the festive period.
The experts are hoping to make someone’s day as they restore beloved items for Christmas.
Host Jay Blades explained they are looking for items in need of TLC as he issued a plea to viewers on Instagram.
In a video, Jay said: “How are we doing guys? You know who I am and you know what I do, and what I’m asking you for is Christmas.
“Now Christmas is a really special time. So you might have something, or you know someone that’s got something that needs to be repaired, but it has that special memory for them.

“You know, that Christmas memory that just brings everything flooding back.
“You know, that beautiful time? You know what you’ve got to do. You’ve got to apply, and let us know.
“Because I’ve got experts waiting and they need to fix your item. So, let’s get it done.”
It’s not the first time the team of experts have called for fans to send in their items.

Earlier in the week, Suzie Fletcher and Dominic Chinea created a Love Actually inspired video to implore fans to reach out.
They captioned the video: “#TheRepairShop (is) Actually… looking for festive items in need of repair!
“Visit www.bbc.co.uk/takepart or email [email protected] if you have an item you’d like the team to take a look at.”
Fans were quick to comment with suggestions however, many said they were hoping the show would be available to watch in the US.
User yomomma53 commented: “Christmas for me would be being able to watch this in the USA! I’ve made it up through season five before but there’s nothing here after season five. I MISS YOU GUYS!”
beauvaismichelle added: “Do you take applicants from the US? I’ve got my Grandmother’s ceramic Christmas tree that has a piece broken off the bottom, a poorly repaired star, loose birds, and a music box that isn’t working.”
georgina_eastlake posted: “I have applied with a wonderful antique rotating musical box Christmas tree stand totally unique, but haven’t heard back.”
The Repair Shop is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
