Speaking about exactly what they want, Jay Blades explained: "We are looking for items that have a festive feel to them. They don't have to be antique, it can be absolutely anything, but it must have that sentimental value and it must mean something to you and it needs repairing. We want you to get in contact because we want to get these things fixed for you."

Chatting on Lorraine in September, he said: "That and many other things that have come in have been so emotional. Sometimes it's hard to do the work while not having tears running down your face. And you see how much these things mean to people, gosh, sorry!" Lorraine replied: "All of you really care so much. The work you put into these objects... you get them all sorted out and I just think it's amazing."
