Speaking ahead of the episode, Pierro discussed what it has been like filming for the show and what his biggest challenge so far had been.

He said: “The most challenging fix so far, has been the last one I did at the barn – the Adox sport camera.

“This camera was used by the client’s grandfather in the Vietnam War.

“When it arrived, it probably would have been easier to manufacture a new camera than it would have been repair – there were parts missing screws missing everything was broken, springs gone.

“I made several tiny springs, replaced the bellows and even custom-made and 3D printed a brand-new part for the camera.

“Despite being a complex repair, it was exciting for me to create replacement parts from scratch.”

The Repair Shop airs on Wednesday at 8pm on BBC One.
