Jay Blades not keen on celebrity version of The Repair Shop 'May take away from the brand'


The beloved programme often includes tear-jerking situations, as guests become emotional after the show’s experts restore their previously damaged treasures.

Jay explained that as a result, he and his co-stars have to fight their natural instincts to “put their hands out” to offer comfort to guests who need support.

When quizzed on whether it’s “weird” to incorporate coronavirus restrictions into the show, Jay said: “Yes, definitely. I think with distancing and especially with filming, I think us as humans, we as a community like to touch and support people.

“If someone’s crying, you put your hand out, if someone’s going through a sad time, normally you put your hand on their knee or hold their hand, we’re very tactile. So with the two metres thing, you can’t touch anybody.”

The presenter added: “So it’s a very strange way to communicate with someone at a distance and learning that is very, very strange.”
