The Repair Shop thrown into chaos as 'every member of crew' breaks down in tears

10/18/2021

THE Repair Shop is no stranger to a tearjerking moment, but there was one moment in particular that had the entire crew in tears.

BBC’s hit series often sees guests break down in tears on the show when a restored item is revealed to them.


Reuniting special belongings that have been lovingly restored to their former glory, one memory has stuck in the mind of the workshop’s resident horologist Steve Fletcher.

Steve is a familiar face to regular viewers of the show as he specialises in the repairing and function of clocks.

Having been a part of the show since 2016, the clock expert has witnessed several heartwarming scenes and revealed that it’s not only those in front of the camera who get caught up in these special moments.

"Sometimes every member of the production crew is in tears," the clock restorer revealed.

"I remember once the boom operator was in floods, but since the poor lad had to use both arms to hold the boom up, he had no way of wiping the tears away."

The craftsman also noted that these reunions aren’t the only heartwarming aspect of working on the popular BBC show.

Despite the majority of people who bring items onto the show are middle-aged, Steve revealed that the programme also has a large number of young viewers, adding: "I love that we’re inspiring youngsters to think they can make a living from working with their hands."

The Repair Shop host Jay Blades also opened up about the emotional elements of the show.

He said: "When someone comes in to collect the restored item, sometimes you can see them revert back to a five-year-old kid.

"They’re reminded of how that item looked when they first got it. It takes them right back there and that is magic."

The Repair Shop airs Wednesday's at 8pm on BBC One.
