BBC’s The Repair Shop has become a comforting piece of television for viewers everywhere in the recent months of lockdown.

The show – hosted by furniture restorer turned presenter Jay Blades – sees customers pay a visit toJay and his team of experts to have a cherished family heirloom brought back to life.

It is a show that has inspired many a tearjerking moment, as customers share their touching personal stories, and are reunited with their restored item.

Part of the comforting nature comes from the soft Glaswegian tones of its narrator – but who is the man behind such a soothing commentary?
