During an interview in 2018 with the Shropshire Star, Jay spoke of wanting to be the “Jamie Oliver of furniture”.
He explained: “The TV stuff? I’d love to be the Jamie Oliver of furniture, so giving back to the young people, giving back to communities.
“Showing them it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg; you can create something from nothing, and you can also have fun while you are doing it, because that is what I like to do.”
Away from his career on screen, Jay owns his own modern furniture restoration business called Jay&Co.
