The Jay Blades-fronted series is often emotional, but the final episode of the series ramps things up a gear.

Amongst the people he meets in his workshop this time are a 12-year-old boy who saved his dad's life when he suffered a heart attack while they were out on a run together, and a woman who runs a not-for-profit furniture service.

Get ready for a teary conclusion to the heartwarming series.
