THE REPAIR SHOP RENEWED FOR THREE YEARS AND JAY'S HOME FIX AXED BY BBC ONE

The Repair Shop's Jay Blades has revealed the hit BBC series has been commissioned for three more years (date of commission unclear) and confirmed that his series Jay's Home Fix has been axed.



The Repair Shop has been a smash hit for BBC One with the format airing across daytime and peaktime. It sees ordinary members of the public enter the workshop where a team of craftsmen and women take broken or damaged good and bring them back to life.



Jay's Home Fix saw Jay demonstrating handy home tips through a range of demonstrations from his own workshop, aided by a rich catalogue of BBC home and garden archive. The daytime series was commissioned in 2020 when the nation was in lockdown.


Jay told The Daily Star: "We aren't going any more of it. There is more stuff coming. Watch this space. We are working on a different show. It will be positive. We were commissioned for The Repair Shop for three more years and if people keep watching us, we'll be on for another three years after that."



A BBC spokesperson said (via The Daily Star): "We loved working with Jay and Dom on Home Fix, and after two brilliant series we're making space in the schedule for new commissions."


Speaking in 2020 on the original commission, Jay said: "DIY is a real passion of mine, but sometimes even the most simple tasks are met with hesitation - and this is usually because people have failed at past projects."



The Repair Shop is available on BBC One and iPlayer.
