An artist from Gorleston has been featured in a new BBC show presented by one of TV’s best-loved faces

Becky Hale, who works in addiction treatment, appeared in Monday night's episode of Touring Toolshed which is presented by Sir David Jason and Jay Blade.

Touring Toolshed sees the duo attend a craft, hobby or engineering fair to meet enthusiasts, tinkerers and crafters and call in some talented experts to help fix their problem projects.

In the episode, the pair ventured to the Midlands Air Festival at Radley Hall where they met Ms Hale.
