The Repair Shop star Will Kirk has revealed the heartwarming tradition he is planning as a gift for his baby girl, who was born in July last year. 

The restoration expert, who has been crafting a handmade wooden toy in the shape of an elephant for the past year, appeared on ITV's Lorraine on Wednesday. 

The 37-year-old explained that he is hoping to carve a new wooden toy representing a different animal each year. See what he said in the video below…

This isn't the first time that Will has opened up about presents he has worked on for his daughter. Back in October, he delighted his followers by revealing his incredible restoration of an old teddy bear as a gift for his little girl. 

While Will has chosen to keep his child's name private, he regularly shares updates on his home life with his Instagram followers.

Will shares his eight-month-old with his wife Polly, whom he married in a romantic ceremony in the Cotswolds in August 2021. 

The Travelling Auctioneers host, who is known for his impressive woodwork skills, spoke to HELLO! back in November about becoming a dad, revealing he finds it "tricky" leaving his little one at home when he goes off to work in The Repair Shop barn in West Sussex.

When asked how fatherhood had been treating him, he said: "Absolutely amazing. I love her so much. It was quite tricky to leave home this morning to come down to The Repair Shop because she's so sweet in the mornings and she just looks up at you and she'd just woken up. 

"I'm absolutely in love. It's the best thing I've ever done, I think, having a child," he added.
