The star has been described as a “woodworking wonder” on the BBC, and had helped Sarah Moore turn trash into cash several times.

What happened to Norman?

Norman sadly passed away on February 10th, 2019.

A funeral obituary details that the carpenter lived until the age of 78 years old, having been born on June 7, 1940.

A fan paid tribute and wrote: “A lovely man, good sense of humour and very talented. Greatly missed on the programme. R.I.P. Norman x.”

Until his death, he is thought to have worked for Just Jones Interiors, a small independent furniture business in East Sussex.

The last time he was spotted on the company’s Instagram – which hasn’t posted a photo since September 2019 – was back in 2018.
