Speaking of the reaction, one person wrote: "Absolutely a beautiful item & did a fantastic job with the repair. Bought tears to my eyes with her reaction." Another added: "Good Lord, what an episode. Hannah's piano stool had me in bits. Will did such an incredible job at restoring it. Tipple stick silver cup was sublime, the Lagonda speedo, epic and the basket was a real labour of love.  Well done all."

Will has previously opened up about becoming emotional on the show, telling Lorraine Kelly: "Sometimes it's hard to do the work while not having tears running down your face. And you see how much these things mean to people, gosh, sorry!" 

He added: "There's an amazing team there at the barn and it's a lovely show! Just watching that, there's a lump in my throat. We're so invested in the item and the people bringing them in."
