The Repair Shop star Will Kirk has opened up about an awful experience he had during a segment on BBC Morning Live. Chatting to presenter Wayne Perrey on Fridays edition of The TV Carpenter Podcast Will revealed that he went home and cried after an awkward moment on the show which is fronted by Gethin Jones and Kym Marsh.
I actually remember one morning that it was my lack of organisation where I was doing a paint demonstration and I didnt realise that I was supposed to have started the painting. He continued Gethin turned around and said How are you getting on with that painting? and Im kind of just looking into space in the back and I hadnt started it yet. They came over and the paint was wet I didnt have time to start doing anything else and I just had to blag the whole thing.
It was so awful. I was so sad I cried when I got home. I did actually cry but it was fine whatever he said brushing it off. But then I learnt that live TV is a completely different set up and you really need to be prepared because youre live he added. Will is currently working on a new show away from BBC Morning Live and The Repair Shop which is set to air later this year.
