Speaking about the show, host and comedian, PJ Gallagher said:

“I can wire a plug but generally I’ve always had ornamental hands and only dream of one day making something useful… like a breadboard.

“I’m really looking forward to meeting my fellow DIY fans around the country and even more so I’m hoping to see some really original projects… and even some epic fails!

“A friend of mine is building a hen house in the shape of the GPO, I’d love to see something cool like that win.”
