Jay Blades' Repair Shop co-star played a tender role in his engagement to fiancée Lisa
The Repair Shop star Jay Blades announced his engagement to fiancée Lisa-Marie Zhozen over the Christmas season last year, and he presented her with a ring made by one of his co-workers on his BBC show. It seemed the ultimate romantic gesture - and Jay's co-worker Richard played a helping hand in upgrading the relationship, which had raised Jay out of a deep depression.A delighted Jay had tagged his The Repair Shop co-worker Richard Talman in Instagram posts, flaunting the stunning ring he has given her."Ring designed by me & made by @rtf," he wrote alongside the image.Meanwhile, Richard shared in their joy by dedicating his own social media post to their union."It was a real honour to make this engagement ring for another one of my #repairshop family! Congratulations to Lisa @lisamariezbozen & Jay @jaybladesmbe on your engagement!," he exclaimed proudly.Jay was congratulated publicly by Leigh-Anne Pinnock, the Little Mix star he once mentored as part of his furniture business, and pal Louise Minchin.His relationship helped him enormously after a period of time during which he had hit "rock bottom".The 51-year-old had suffered a string of hardships throughout his life, from living on a rat-infested council estate in poverty after his father abandoned the family when he was a baby, to becoming homeless at 21 and having nothing more than a single carrier bag of possessions to his name.However, in spite of his success on The Repair Shop, Jay revealed he found himself "homeless" yet again as an older adult following the break-up of his previous marriage with ex-wife Jade."I was homeless.

The Repair Shop’s Jay Blades recalls being homeless and owning just a grocery bag
Jay Blades found himself homeless and helpless in London.The Repair Shop star hit rock bottom when the only possessions he owned all fitted into a small supermarket carrier bag.Now, of course, Jay is a household name for his expertise in furniture restoration, but he has had much darker days in the past, as he revealed for a new documentary series, There's No Place Like Home."I was all over the place, I had no direction," Jay admitted frankly of his life as a 21-year-old."I left London because I was getting into loads of fights and there were people after me."After fleeing a gang environment, he and his mum moved to Luton temporarily, during which time he fathered a child.However, after the relationship broke down, he returned to London and resorted to a terrifying life on the streets."I had a supermarket carrier bag with all of my stuff in there - and it wasn’t a lot," Jay clarified.He then spent a depressing spell in a hostel, which fuelled his feelings of hopelessness."I remember thinking, 'Is this what my life has come to, is this the end for me?'" the TV star lamented.He, along with three other men, were then thrown a lifeline - an offer of a stay in a Peabody flat, as part of a social housing scheme that began in the Victorian era.The scheme was named after American philanthropist George Peabody, who aimed to provide affordable housing options for those confined to slum-like conditions in the likes of inner city London.However, wallpaper and pets were banned, and there were strict rules and conditions attached to his tenancy.Though it was intended to be a morally uplifting place, Jay countered: "I always thought this was just a normal council estate.
