In the post, shared over the weekend when the UK clocks turned back, Steve wrote in the caption: "Don't forget that the clocks go back in the UK at 2am - I've got my work cut out for me! My family has proudly looked after some of the biggest local clocks for generations, and twice a year I make my visits to ensure the time is set correctly.

Fans were especially delighted when Steve shared an incredible childhood photo alongside his sister and Repair Shop co-star Suzie. The BBC presenter wrote in the post shared earlier this month: "Well done to those of you who guessed that the photo on today's story (swipe to see) is of me holding my sister Suzie!

"We're both here filming The Repair Shop today, some 50 (ish) years later. She seems happier to be in my company these days!!"
