TV Carpenter / DIY Expert & Presenter
Official Agent: Craig Latto
Wayne Perrey, widely known as the “new face of DIY” due to his fresh approach to teaching, is a TV carpenter and presenter and currently the DIY expert on ITV's Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh. His TV Carpenter Podcast was listed in the top five by the Sunday Times Home Magazine thanks to his engaging chats with design professionals such as Jonathan Adler, Alan Titchmarsh, Sophie Robinson and Michelle Ogundehin.
Wayne has been featured widely in the media and is one of the only professional carpenters to work on both garden and interior design makeover shows such as the BBC's Interior Design Masters, The Great Interior Design Challenge, Garden Rescue and ITV's Love Your Garden. He is also a regular expert on BBC One's Morning Live.
Over the past few years, he has created e-books, online courses and written for the Sunday Times Home Magazine and is currently engaging and helping members in his Interior Designers Support Group and DIY Do-ers Facebook groups. He has also hosted live sessions at the Ideal Home Show.
Living in London with his wife and daughter, Wayne is not embarrassed to admit that even though he changed career 10 years ago by swapping the glitter of being a West End leading performer for the saw dust of the power tools on makeover shows, he has never looked back. He just apologises if when you work together, he starts to hum the odd show tune… now you know why!
