Repair Shop star Steve Fletcher is a caring father of five and sometimes shares bits of his family life on social media.
Earlier this month, the horologist was the proud papa to his daughter, whose name has not been released, as she graduated from Oxford Brookes University as a primary education teacher. Congratulations!
On Instagram, the TV star posted a photo from the graduation day, in which Steve has his arm around his daughter, who was wearing a traditional cap and gown.
Expressing his pride in the caption, Steve wrote: “Very proud day for our family yesterday!
“Wonderful to watch my daughter graduate from @oxfordbrookes with a BA (Hons) in Primary Teacher Education.”

Steve likes to keep his romantic life out of the spotlight, so little is known about his partner. However, we do know that she had a hand in launching the watch expert’s television career.

He continued: “Not believing anything on the internet, I almost deleted it and would have if my partner, Mel, hadn’t stopped me saying everything looked fine. I answered and a few moments later was on the phone from [producer] Shane who told me about the series and I agreed to appear in it.”
