Another The Repair Shop Christmas special is coming!

However, as well as the festive special - which usually airs on Boxing Day - viewers can also look forward to settling down on the sofa this Autumn for new instalments of the regular show. Back in July, woodwork restorer Will revealed that he and the rest of the team were filming new episodes at the workshop.

The team are back filming new episodes

The presenter, who also appears on Morning Live, shared a series of images on his Instagram and wrote: "Sun shining and back filming a new series... What more could we want?"

Will's co-star Jay previously opened up to HELLO! about the pros and cons of filming the tearjerker show while adhering to social distancing restrictions. "The beauty is that we've got the brilliant team behind the cameras," he said.

"[They] worked out logistically how it would look like that we're still together, but we're not together and adhering to social distancing. They've done a brilliant job, when you do see the new series, you'll recognise that there's not as much touching, but it'll still feel exactly the same.

However, he added: "The only thing I would say is you can't meet people personally during these times, you have to do it either by Zoom or a phone call and it's distanced, but once you start speaking to people, they're going to open up."
