The Repair Shop has been bringing tears of joy and happiness to the clients for some years now. And Matt Nickels has been a part of the team that brings joy to people for most of those few years.

Meet Matt Nickels, The Repair Shop Star
According to his Linkedin profile, Matt is a “stained-glass master craftsman at city stained glass Brighton”. He is indeed known for being a star and a glass expert in BBC’s reality show “The Repair Shop”.
Matt has been an integral part of the show since 2018 as a “stained glass expert”. The show itself started in December 2017 and Matt has been a part of the show for almost three years now. Matt is the “go-to” guy for glassworks in The Repair Shop.
Matt’s job in the show is basically to repair old windows, which usually need replacement rather than repair. However, many times, such items do have some emotional meaning to the owners. So, Matt usually repairs the windows for them.
The Repair Shop was created by Katy Thorogood and directed by Ben Borland. Jay Blades, who is a furniture restorer by profession, will be the foreman of the show. The series produced by Ricochet and airs on BBC One (Season 1 and season 3) and BBC Two (season 4 to season 8). A total of 8 seasons have aired so far.
Apart from Matt, the other major part of the repair team is Dominic China, Suzie Fletcher, Steve Fletcher, Lucia Scalisi, Kirsten Ramsay, Amanda Middleditch, Julie Tatchell, Brenton West, and Will Kirk.
Apart from The Repair Shop, Matt had also appeared as himself on the TV documentary called Rebuilding Notre-Dame: Inside the Great Cathedral Rescue.
Before he became very very famous and successful with The Repair Shop, Matt had already achieved some pretty amazing feats. For example, he helped “glazing the House of Parliament”. He also oversaw the “£5 million glass windows at York Minster”.
Matt also worked as a glazier and conservator for The York Glaziers Trust. Matt first joined the Trust in 2019. And before he joined The York Glaziers, Matt had worked for his “family-owned glazing business” for over a decade.
Matt first graduated from the University of Manchester in 2008. Then he did his Master of Arts in Stained Glass Conservation at the University of York and graduated with a distinction. When was he studying at the University of York, his traineeship was supported by York Minster Fund.
