Jay shared the update on his social media

Jay continued: "I call her this because she has come into a role, that had some very big boots to fill but as her nickname states she is definitely upgraded the role and adds a sense of calm fun and a beautiful can-do attitude which we all need done at The Repair Shop. Please join me in saying hello and welcome to Sarah."

It's not known what role Sarah will be fulfilling in the team, but if The Repair Shop is known for one thing, it's their family atmosphere so we're confident she'll feel right at home!
