“Keep your questions coming in – we love getting them and so does Jay! Have a fab week, everyone.”

The Repair Shop star continued: “All right, here we go. How do you juggle your personal life with your busy work commitments?
“As you’re growing through the ranks you’re gonna take on loads of different jobs and that’s what I’ve done.
“Just take on loads of different jobs and when you get to a certain level, let’s say you’re a top actor, like someone like Dame Judi Dench, you kind of pick what you want to do.
“But me it’s really, really hard to juggle the personal life and the business…it is really hard.”

“So I don’t know how to juggle it but I make sure that I make time for my family, which is really, really important,” Jay added.
“And then I’ve also got to make time for work. I’ve got to be available on both ends and how do you do that?
“If you find a way, phone it in, send an email, or even a carrier pigeon… let me know how you do it properly because I’m still struggling there.”
