The Repair Shop series 5: Cast
Once again, the nation’s favourite host Jay Blades will be presenting the renovation show.
And based on BBC’s listing image, clock restorer Stephen Fletcher, furniture expert William Kirk and ceramic restoration expert Kirsten Ramsay will be all back for series 5.
Regular experts, metal worker Dominic China and antique photography specialist Brenton West, should also be back as they’ve appeared in more than 40 episodes before.
Stephen’s sister Suzie Fletcher might also be back who’s starred in 41 episodes.
What will series 5 feature?
The much-loved renovation show will once again include precious items of people who want to restore their original look.
One of the new items that will be featured is a pump organ that was once a mother’s pride and joy.
There will be also a jukebox that holds special memories from someone’s wedding day, as well as an alabaster light shade that will turn into one of the trickiest restorations for Kirsten.
Impressive viewing statistics
The show quickly turned to be a nation’s favourite and the statistics clearly show that too.
According to BBC, the Christmas special on 29 December in 2019 had reached 5.5m viewers.
