Kirstie gave TV Times a background briefing: “I didn’t really know what to expect from the celebrity circuit – but everyone who came on was really undemanding, worked hard, took it seriously and did an amazing job. We had a lot of fun.”

And she told us what the celebs make: “Everything from leather bags to plant holders, cushions, picture frames and floral centrepieces.

“There are 15 episodes, so over three weeks you see different people have a go at things from paper-cutting to calligraphy, ceramics, working with concrete, wax, metal, crocheting – You name it, they do it!”

All in all, a fun-packed show with masses of creative tips and inspiration.
