Posting on Instagram, the woodwork restorer shared an adorable selfie with "friend for life" Toby, a wooden horse, and melted his followers' hearts in the process. The craftsman was smiling for the photo as he wrote in the caption: "I couldn't resist a little selfie with Toby. It was really sad to see him go, but I think we'll be friends for life."

Will shared this sweet picture with his Instagram followers

It's thought that Will and the rest of the team at The Repair Shop are back shooting new episodes as Will couldn't resist sharing a behind the scenes glimpse at filming recently.

Earlier this month, Will, who has been a fan favourite on the BBC programme since it began in 2017, took to his Instagram Stories to share the short clip of him behind the camera – before panning to the lens to show other regular on the show, Kirsten Ramsay.

Will captioned the video: "Look who's in today," along with a grinning emoji. It's not known when the episode will air, but fans are no doubt in for a treat seeing Will and Kirsten, a ceramics expert, on screen together.
