In today’s world, we are more likely to throw away old items and replace them with something new.
That’s where The Repair Shop comes which sees a bunch of talented craftspeople renovate and fix family heirlooms back to their original glory.
In every episode of the BBC series, Jay Blades and his repairs team fix the unfixable and restore sentimental objects.
However, it seems that viewers pay more attention to the actual restorers. Some viewers say they have a massive crush on expert Will Kirk and wonder whether he’s married.
Meet Will Kirk
Will Kirk is an expert who specialises in carpentry and cabinet making.
The Repair Shop star studied Graphic Design at the University of the Arts before graduating with a BA in Antique Furniture Restoration and Conservation from London Metropolitan University.
According to Will’s website, he discovered his passion for carpentry thanks to his grandfather who used to work at his own workshop.
Will now runs his own studio in London with the help and expertise of his very own repairs team.
Is Will Kirk married?
Yes, Will Kirk is in fact married. He got engaged to his now-wife Polly Snowdon a year before their 2021 wedding. On Thursday, September 17th 2020, Will appeared on ITV’s Lorraine to discuss his big news.
When asked about lockdown and getting engaged, Will responded:
I’ve been putting up lots of shelves, the lovely fiancé has been keeping me very busy! We were supposed to be getting married in August and unfortunately that didn’t happen, so we’re going to get married next year. Yes, I’ve been kept busy!
This was the first time Will Kirk had publicly spoken about his romantic life. They wed in August 2021, where they were joined by his fellow BBC co-stars.

Who is Polly Snowdon?
Will Kirk said that getting married to Polly was the “best day of his life.” Mrs. Kirk works as a doctor and was the BBC craftsman’s long-term girlfriend for years before their special day took place.
She was recently-qualified as a doctor shortly before the wedding. Polly is a Trainee Child, Community and Educational Psychologist at The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, as per Daily Mail.
The Tavistock runs the UK’s first gender clinic in London. She attended University of Exeter to study psychology, before completing her doctorate in Education Psychology at the University of Essex.
