The official photos released by the BBC on Saturday show regular faces including host Jay Blades and experts such as Kirsten Ramsay, Steve Fletcher and Dominic Chinea all gathered in front of the workshop, complete with some gorgeous lights and decorations. We're feeling festive already...

Other snaps see the team stood proudly with each episode's guest contributor.

How festive does the upcoming Christmas special look?

The Christmas episode of The Repair Shop is set to air on Christmas Eve at 7pm on BBC One and the programme announced they were doing a festive episode earlier this year.

The exciting news was announced on the programme's official Instagram page back in September, with a festive snap of the team. The caption read at the time: "#TheRepairShop team want to make your Christmas very special this year!
