Meanwhile a third joked: "Surely you have a ginormous teapot restored by Kirsten sat on a stand made by Will with a timer made by Steve covered with a cosy made from scraps from Sonnar!"

Many were also quick to admire the team's personalised initial mugs. Clearly, the cast has just as much fun filming The Repair Shop as we do watching it each week!

Fans have been guessing how many cups of tea the team gets through a day

Set in a beautiful countryside location, the show is filmed at the Weald and Downland Living Museum in Singleton, which is a charming village in the Lavant Valley, which itself is based in Chichester, West Sussex. 

Meanwhile, the workshop that viewers see on screen is actually a building called the Court Barn.

Speaking about the location, Rob Butterfield, who heads up factual programming at The Repair Shop's production company Ricochet, told the Radio Times: "Many of our huge pool of experts run their own businesses, but the Weald and Downland Museum, where The Repair Shop is filmed, doesn't offer a repair service outside the show."
