'Jay and Dom's Home Fix' has been axed.

The BBC daytime programme - which sees hosts Jay Blades and Dom Chinea offer affordable DIY tips and tricks to viewers - has been axed after just two series in order to make way for new programmes in the network's schedule.

Jay told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: “We aren’t doing any more of it.”

And a BBC spokesperson confirmed: "We loved working with Jay and Dom on 'Home Fix', and after two brilliant series we’re making space in the schedule for new commissions.”

Although Jay is likely to be disappointed by the show's cancellation, it will potentially give him some free time to train for 'Strictly Come Dancing' as he recently admitted he'd love to take part this year after getting a taster when he partnered Luba Mushtuk in the 2021 festive special.

He said: "I tell you what, it would be nice but the only thing is, there’s so much other filming that I’m looking to do so, 'The Repair Shop' is kind of like full on.

"We film like six days a week so it’d be hard to fit it in – yeah.

"I’m not saying no, yeah."

Despite Jay's hugely respectable score of 34 points, he and Luba were beaten to the Glitterball Trophy by singer Anne-Marie and Graziano Di Prima, who scored a perfect 40.

While Jay is up for putting his dancing shoes on again, the star recently admitted he found training for the 'Strictly Come Dancing' Christmas special tougher than he expected.

He previously said: “I like new challenges, I never knew this would be this difficult. Learning dance routines means your brain has to function in a completely different way.

"When your brain gets it, hopefully your body catches up.”
