Will and Christina are teaming up for a new show

Another echoed this, pleading: "Fabulous but please don't leave The Repair Shop", as a third concerned fan asked: "Hope you're still going to be working in the repair shop x." However, Will has not revealed that his new show means he's waving goodbye to the BBC show – phew!

The new show will see Will and Christina take to the road to unearth hidden gems and discarded family heirlooms that they can then restore and sell at auction.

As the official synopsis from the BBC reads: "Sifting through one family home at a time, Will and Christina first need to identify the items that will sell best at a bespoke auction. Christina will call on her auctioneer contacts and expertise, whilst Will uses his incredible craft and restoration skills to bring new life to neglected treasures – ready for a thrilling on-site auction."
