He added: "That's down to the BBC, we've not been allowed to put things out, but fortunately we have filmed during Covid. We've kept the social distancing, and because of the items and people that bring the items in, you still have that kind of warmth.

Jay also told HELLO! in 2020 how they managed to secure some new episodes under their belt throughout lockdown. Although the team had to socially distance and comply with restrictions, the team of experts were able to do what they do best and restore some great new items. "The beauty is that we've got the brilliant team behind the cameras," he told HELLO!.

"[They] worked out logistically how it would look like that we're still together but we're not together and adhering to social distancing."
