Meanwhile, fans of The Repair Shop were left in tears after a recent episode of the BBC restoration programme. The episode, which was originally supposed to air back in April, saw the show's resident horologist Steve Fletcher tasked with fixing a mantle clock shaped like an old ship, brought into the workshop by father and son Herbert and Joshua Klein.

The BBC show is hugely popular

The treasured item was a gift from Herbert's late grandfather and had a very special story behind it - Herbert was born deaf and his grandfather had helped him lip-read by pointing and gesturing at parts of the impressive clock.

His son, Joshua, helped translate the story from British Sign Language so that the team and viewers at home could understand. However, viewers were left emotional as the team at The Repair Shop went above and beyond, using sign language themselves so they could communicate directly with Herbert.

Taking to Twitter to discuss the touching moment, one person summed up the emotional response: "The team at @TheRepairShop have done it again, I'm in tears! Plus they learnt #BritishSignLanguage & used it when handing the ship back to its owner. It's just the best programme on TV."
