Will shared this sweet throwback photo

It's clear that even away from the lifestyle programme, the cast are incredibly supportive of one another. Will even took to his Instagram Stories on Wednesday to share his admiration for Repair Shop presenter Jay after his moving programme, Jay Blades: Learning to Read at 51.

Will reposted a clip from the show which was shared on Jay's own Instagram, and Will wrote: "Super proud of this guy!" followed by a clapping-hand emoji.


An up to date version was also shared

Jay's BBC documentary follows his journey to literacy as he faces the challenge of learning to read as an adult. Many watching at home were moved to tears, particularly while watching a scene that saw Jay reading a book to his 15-year-old daughter.

One person said on social media: "Jay's story is inspirational to anyone struggling thinking it's too late to start again. Reading to your daughter for the first time, tears ran down my face at that poignant moment for you."

Another wrote: "#Jaybladeslearningtoreadat51 was so interesting and wholesome. When he read the book to his daughter at the end I cried happy tears."
