Repair Shop Evening Edition










Following the success of The Repair Shop At Christmas, which attracted 5.5m viewers, the much-loved programme where family heirlooms are restored to their former glory by a team of craftsmen and women has now been commissioned to broadcast on BBC One evenings from this spring.

The Repair Shop will also continue to play out on BBC One afternoons across the week.

In 2019 The Repair Shop was awarded Best Daytime Programme by the Royal Television Society and received the prestigious international Rose d’or prize for Reality and Factual Entertainment. This year it won Best Daytime Programme at the Broadcast Awards.

The Repair Shop is a workshop of dreams, presented by Jay Blades and staffed by a team of Britain’s most skilled restoration experts. In every episode members of the public bring their much loved but broken family treasures for the team to breathe new life into them, while also revealing the personal stories behind the items.

This spring the new series will see items including a Pump Organ that was once a mother's pride and joy, a Juke Box that holds beloved memories of a special wedding day, and an alabaster lightshade that’s one of the trickiest restorations yet for ceramics expert Kirsten - all brought back to life.

Charlotte Moore, Director BBC Content, says: "The award-winning Repair Shop has really struck a chord with the British public and introducing it to evenings on BBC One will only broaden its audience and the craft."
