The Repair Shop has done what it always does best yet again – warming the hearts of its viewers while reducing them to tears as Will Kirk broke down over a beautiful gift.

On Wednesday evening, a festive episode of the BBC programme was shown, as the team repaired a treasured Polyphon, a sleigh, an 18th century painting and a cherished doll.

At the end, the group gathered to exchange their Secret Santa gifts, which they each made from scratch in the shop.

When the turn of furniture restorer Will came around, he opened his ‘suspiciously soft’ present to reveal an exquisitely made grey scarf inside.

Will looked utterly bemused as he looked around the circle, trying to guess who had made the gift.

Finally, his gaze landed on restoration expert Dominic Chinea, who revealed that he had made the scarf, much to his colleague’s amazement.

Dom revealed that it took him ‘ages’ to make the garment, having been taught to knit by his mum.

After the pair shared a heartfelt hug, Will admitted that he was ‘completely shocked’, before fanning his face and turning away as he broke into tears.

He continued to wipe his eyes as he expressed how ‘speechless’ he was over the thoughtful present, with viewers sharing that they had also been deeply moved by the moment.

‘Will crying over Dom’s knitted scarf has made me cry and restored my faith in humanity this evening. There are more good people than bad in the world,’ one person said.

 

 

 

 

‘Oh my goodness. The scarf has me in tears. Such a beautiful moment,’ another tweeted.

‘The Repair Shop was brilliant this evening, I got emotional and I don’t care,’ someone else wrote. ‘Sometimes we just need cheering up and that last hour has certainly warmed my heart.’

One viewer explained that ‘handmade gifts are really appreciated because one knows how much love is put into them’.

‘Seeing the team opening their handmade presents they made for each other gets me every time. It’s just so lovely,’ another said.

A Christmas special for The Repair Shop is due to air on Christmas Eve this year, as the team set about restoring a special mechanical doll, a traditional German decoration, an ageing harmonium and a train set from Kenya.

The Repair Shop is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
