Jay Blades appears in good spirits as he is seen for the FIRST time back on the set of The Repair Shop without his wedding ring since his shock marriage split SuperNayr

Jay Blades was seen back on the set of The Repair Shop for the first time since his shock marriage split.

The presenter returned to work on Monday as he was spotted without his wedding ring on after his wife Lisa Marie Zbozen announced in May that the couple had split after 18 months of marriage.

It was announced that Jay would be taking time away from TV in light of the separation, however it seems he’s seemingly been permitted by the BBC to resume work.

Jay, 54, looked delighted to be back with the crew as he beamed in snaps while filming scenes at the Bournemouth set.

The TV star wore his signature black flat cap, zip up black overalls and a navy blue jacket as he got to work on the upcoming episodes.

He completed the look with some fur-lined brown boots, while his fourth finger on his left hand was left bare. 

Sources close to the production reportedly told Click News, that his presence back on set has brought back a sense of ‘normalcy’ after he took time away from the show.

Lisa walked out on Jay last month, saying their 18-month marriage ‘just got worse and worse, until I grabbed a bag of a few things and I left’.

It came soon after the murder of his uncle who tragically died in April. 

Taking to Instagram, Lisa announced her split from the TV star who she married in November 2022, in an emotional post.   

She said: ‘I have been quiet until now, but the papers seem to be picking up this story, but some parts have been definitely missed, so it’s forced my hand…

‘This was the whole post on a private forum: I don’t know how to say this because it’s still really raw.

‘I probably should be really angry but I’m just incredibly sad about the whole thing right now. I don’t think I’ve ever cried so much.

‘I wanted my husband to love me & keep me safe, and I would love him right back, but it just got worse and worse, until I grabbed a bag of a few thing’s & I just left. Anyway, That’s why there’s been no new wkouts [workouts].’

In another post, she said: ‘I will admit I’m crying as I type this as I can’t believe this is even real. I hope you don’t mind if I just have a few days trying to figure out my life as I’m currently in a spare room with a few essentials.

‘I don’t know what else to say. All my love, A very broken Lisa-Marie x.’
