Will Kirk has teased an exciting new project away from his role on the BBC One heirloom-fixing show, The Repair Shop

The woodwork expert shared a video to Instagram hinting at a collaboration with the furniture company, West Elm. 

The brief clip showed glimpses of a beautifully decorated bedroom, kitted out with various oak furniture pieces, including a cabinet and side table, which featured a snap of Will and his wife Polly on their wedding day.

The caption read: "Coming soon…  #WestElmDesignCrew."

Will has kept details of the new project well underwraps, so fans will have to wait for the star to release more information in the coming weeks.

Last year, Will began presenting BBC One's new antiques show, The Travelling Auctioneers, alongside auctioneer Christina Trevanion. 

The show, which began airing in October, sees Will and Christina combine their skills of furniture restoration and antiques dealing as they travel up and down the county in search of hidden gems, restoring forgotten items to their former glory before taking them to auction.

Will is currently appearing in the latest series of The Repair Shop, which airs every Wednesday evening on BBC One. 

In last week's episode, Will and his co-star Steve Fletcher wowed viewers with their stunning restoration of a unique replica model of Big Ben.

The beloved item, which is made almost entirely from matchsticks, was brought in by Charlotte Fischer, who explained that the clock belonged to her great grandfather, artist Edwin Aldous, who built it in 1953 to commemorate the late Queen Elizabeth's coronation. 

Fans were blown away by the experts' work and took to Twitter to praise the transformation. One person wrote: "Kudos for knowing how the clock bits go back together Steve," while another added: "Think every viewer must've said 'wow' when that clock was unveiled, brilliant yet again from the team."
