Lorraine said to Will: "Now you of course get a lot of attention because you're very good at your job, you're absolutely delightful, and also you are incredibly handsome, I'm sorry I'm just stating a fact! How do you feel about that, because people say you are one of the heartthrob's of The Repair Shop?"

Looking flattered, Will responded: "I've never heard that before," which lead to Lorrain retorting with: "Oh behave!" Will, who was coyly blushing, then added: "But it's always nice to get a compliment... yes, I don't know what to say!"

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." A third fan simply said: "Ahhh that's lovely."
