Will previously admitted he sometimes struggles to hold it together on The Repair Shop.
“There’s an amazing team there at the barn and it’s a lovely show! Just watching that, there’s a lump in my throat. We’re so invested in the item and the people bringing them in,” he said.
“That and many other things that have come in have been so emotional. Sometimes it’s hard to do the work while not having tears running down your face. And you see how much these things mean to people, gosh, sorry!”
