Presenter Jay Blades has since spoken of the future of the popular show.

The series received the Daytime prize at the TV BAFTAs for an episode of The Repair Shop: A Royal Visit that featured King Charles III, when Jay and the specialists visited Charles at Dumfries House in Scotland.

"I think we've been commissioned for another two years if I'm not mistaken. We are going to do more. We've just won a BAFTA so I think they're going to want us to stay on air," the star told Hello magazine.

Jay was recently left in tears on the show after welcoming bereaved couple, Emese and Luke to the barn.

The couple brought the clay imprint of their late son David's footprints, which were taken just days before he passed away at five months old.

As the couple left after explaining their heart-breaking story, Jay was seen emotional, breathing in deeply whilst fighting back the tears.
