How old is Will Kirk on The Repair Shop and does he have a girlfriend?
WILL Kirk has captured the hearts of many The Repair Shop fans, with many left wondering if the hunky carpenter is single.
He’s one of the experts on the show and when it comes to carpentry there’s nothing he can’t fix.
Who is Will Kirk and how old is he?
Will Kirk is best known for featuring on BBC One’s The Repair Shop, and he’s thought to be between 30 and 35 years old.
The experts on the show restore old items in a bid to give them a second life for their owners.
He is one of the show’s most regularly called upon experts, as they change each episode due to the nature of the item in question.
Will works in carpentry and is a cabinetmaker, so anything to do with woodwork means he gets a call to help restore the item.
He got into his line of work after seeing his grandad working in his workshop – so carpentry has been in the family for some time.
As a student he studied graphic design at the prestigious University of the Arts, then went on to do another degree in antique furniture restoration and conservation.
He worked in Italy for a while afterwards but returned to London, eventually setting up his own workshop in 2012 with a team of craftsmen.

Does Will Kirk have a girlfriend?
Speaking on ITV’s Lorraine in September, Will revealed that he is engaged.
While sharing his experience of lockdown he said, “I’ve been putting up lots of shelves, the lovely fiancée has been keeping me very busy!”
“We were supposed to be getting married in August and unfortunately that didn’t happen, so we’re going to get married next year. Yes, I’ve been kept busy!”
Fans have often wondered what his relationship status is.
Given that he doesn’t wear a wedding ring on the show, nor does he post pictures on social media that suggest a partner, he was long thought to be single.
In May, Realitytitbit.com published a story saying they had found a picture of him with a girlfriend – the link to that image no longer works, so it could be that Will is keeping a relationship private.
