The update is bittersweet as it comes amid the news that Jay and Dom's Home Fix was axed by the BBC after just two series. The show first began airing in 2020 and was inspired in part by lockdown restrictions which saw a huge number of people rekindle their love for DIY.

Giving a glimpse of the workshop, which is located at the Weald and Downland Living Museum, he said: "Look at that. [We've] come here to do some filming today. Very busy behind those two doors. You guys will be seeing some of it later on in the year I think."
