BBC One’s The Repair Shop Search For Special Fixes

Written by on 11th March 2024

Jay Blades and the experts from BBC One’s The Repair Shop are returning to the barn to film a new series of the much-loved programme and they are on the lookout for special items to restore to their former glory.

Since launching on our screens in 2017, the experts have saved more than a thousand precious items and historical artifacts – with memorable fixes like the iconic rocking horse, a Jewish Prayer Book that survived Theresienstadt concentration camp, a grip that was used to travel over on the Windrush ships, and a 2,000-year-old Chinese statue.

There has been a plethora of items from musical instruments to beautiful antique paintings, and charming household objects, and the team are searching for more treasures hidden across the country waiting to be discovered and brought back to life at the barn.

The Repair Shop’s presenter, Jay Blades, said:

“Series ten! It’s incredible to think about how many fixes we’ve completed and we want your help to really uncover some items that will make a difference to someone’s family history.”

Ceramics Expert, Kirsten Ramsay said:

“We’ve fixed so many different items, including very niche objects. If you have something that is really special to you with a fascinating back story, and is in need of some TLC, we want to hear from you.”

Executive Producer, Glenn Swift said:

“As well as the fixes themselves, we love hearing the very special stories that make those items quite so precious.  If you have an item that you hold dear that has perhaps fallen past its prime, then please fill out the form on the BBC website or email us the details.”

The Repair Shop team is reaching out to a wide range of communities for series 10. Please email applications@ricochet.co.uk or log on to www.bbc.co.uk/takepart for more information.
