About Jake Robinson
Jake got his first TV break when he was working behind the scenes on Changing Rooms and Carol Smiley suggested he tried his luck in front of the camera.
Since then, having been a regular presenter on BBC 1's Big Strong Boys and Builders Sweat and Tears, Jake has become one of the nations favourite DIY experts. His reputation as an outstanding craftsman, at both designing as well as building homes, has resulted in him become a "carpenter to the stars", with a long list of celebrity clients including Chris Tarrant and Denise Van Outen. He is equally at home working on a one to one basis with private clients, or organising a team of workers as site manager.
Jake recently was chosen to oversee the construction of the huge masterpiece on BBC 1's live primetime showpiece for Rolf On Art - The Big Event.
Jake now also runs The Islington Building Company, providing building services including extensions, refurbishments, shop-fitting, decorating, plumbing, electrics, flooring, bespoke furniture and much more.
