Will wrote in the caption: "One of the many things I love about filming in the British countryside is being surrounded by nature. As a huge fan of hedgehogs, I decided to build a hedgehog house. Hedgehogs hibernate between November and mid March, so in preparation I thought I'd make a snug space for the little locals."

The BBC star's followers were full of praise for Will's latest venture, with one person gushing: "Awww! So cute!", while a second wrote: "So thoughtful."

Will has gained quite the fanbase 

As well as gaining fans from viewers, it seems that Will has gained a well-known fan thanks to his time on the show, Lorraine Kelly! The TV presenter revealed that she was very emotional when the team fixed a rocking horse that was made by the guest's late husband.

She said: "You restore people's treasures. There's not one episode I haven't cried at! Do you remember when you repaired the rocking horse and you found the signature of the lady's late husband under the saddle, oh that was so lovely. All of you really care so much.

"The work you put into these objects, sometimes they come in and you think it's ready for the dustbin, then you sort it out."
