THE Repair Shop's Will Kirk has revealed a major new presenting project away from the BBC series.
The 37-year-old furniture restorer has been part of The Repair Shop since 2017.
However, Will is stepping away from the barn for his first show as a main presenter.
The Travelling Auctioneers sees Will team up with Antiques Road Trip star Christina Trevanion and take their bespoke mobile auction house and workshop out on the road across the UK.
Along the way, they unearth hidden gems and turn unwanted items into winning lots – with one lucky couple making more than £9,000 in the series.
Sifting through one family home at a time, Will and Christina first need to identify the items with the biggest selling appeal.

Christina then calls on her auctioneer contacts and expertise, whilst Will uses his incredible craft and restoration skills to bring new life to neglected treasures – ready for a thrilling on-site auction at the end of each episode.
Speaking about his new project, Will said: "Starting a new job is always a little nerve-wracking, but Christina was just so lovely from day one!
"We got on like a house on fire, so it was a real pleasure to go to work and get to film with her each day."
He continued: "I’ve been incredibly lucky to work with some amazing people on all of my projects.
