Tonight's The Repair Shop episode

The Repair Shop returns with tonight - Wednesday, 8PM on 27 October - with a brand new episode.

The first item to arrive is a double challenge for metal man Dominic Chinea and upholstery expert Sonnaz Nooranvary. Father and daughter Joe and Sophie Davies have a piece of their family trade’s history that they are hoping to revive to be used again. Joe’s father, Bill, opened a barber’s shop in 1949, and both Joe and Sophie have followed in his footsteps. One of the last remaining mementos of the original shop is a 1960s chrome and vinyl barber’s chair, which Sophie dreams of having as the centre piece of her own shop.

Next through the barn doors is Sima Oskoui, with an unusual instrument that will test the skills of Julyan Wallis. Sima has brought in her late father’s tar, a type of long-necked stringed instrument from Iran and a precursor to the modern guitar.

Vintage arcade and pinball machine restorer Geoff Harvey takes on the next assignment, a German roulette machine belonging to Sian Salkeld. For Sian, the machine brings back memories of childhood holidays in Norfolk, where it lived in the family cottage

Finally, Dom is back in action again, this time with woodwork specialist Will Kirk as they take on a thorny equine problem – a worn out vintage carousel horse called Edward. Edward is the very treasured companion of Kate Horncastle and the centrepiece of her sensory therapy garden at home, which helps Kate with her autism and epilepsy.


The Repair Shop currently airs on BBC One.
