Meanwhile, others were still gushing about Will's incredible work on Tuesday night's episode of the restoration programme.

"Great programme you all did well, but Will that was amazing how you put that sewing table back together," one viewer commented.  Another echoed this, saying: "Absolutely loved your work on the sewing stand tonight. What a truly gifted young man you are. I sobbed like a baby when she picked it up."

In the episode, a woman named Claire entered the workshop hoping to restore a beloved Victorian sewing table that once belonged to her great-grandmother. The precious table had been sadly crushed by a falling painting and Will took on the task of painstakingly piecing it back together.

Although the 36-year-old woodworker admitted to finding the repair quite tricky, he managed to restore the treasured heirloom to its former glory, leaving Claire in floods of tears.
