Opening up about which repair took the longest to complete, the BBC star revealed: “The repair that has taken the longest, I think it was the sidecar.

“There was a little sidecar that was on the side of a push bike and Dom worked on it, and it took forever cos we had to order fabric, get things shot blasted and then come back and spray it.

“Dom was making all the inners and he made the roof, done the windows. It was a long time and it was so long I can’t remember.
