Five-minute Chat with Martyn Parker

Martyn Parker stopped by for a quick catch-up to reveal all about his Create and Craft journey

“One of the greatest rewards of being part of the Create and Craft family is the lovely feedback from viewers”

I love showcasing amazing products at great prices to our viewers and having some fun along the way! I have been out on the road this year promoting Create and Craft at the NEC and Malvern Crafting Live, and I hope to be back at the NEC in November.

One of the greatest rewards of being part of the Create and Craft family is the lovely feedback from viewers on how we make their day enjoyable and rewarding. Also, the gifts and handmade items I have received over the years are heart-warming and make it all worthwhile.

The best part about being a presenter?

The beauty of live TV is that things are constantly changing. I love working with all our great guests. I pride myself in being able to present whatever is put in front of me and I love being the first to show off something new.

Pitch your ideal television programme...

The Great Big Craft Off! I’d have professional crafters and viewers in a race to be Champion Crafter. They would all be given the same tools and have a set time to make something amazing. I’d have two judges; Stephanie Weightman and John Bloodworth and I’d be the witty compère. Each week someone would be knocked out until the champion is revealed.

What's your idea of the perfect weekend getaway?

I prefer a bit of peace and quiet when not on air. As long as I am with my wife and doing something relaxing I’m happy to be at home. I also enjoy watching sports, reading and playing bowls. A trip to somewhere with mountains and snow would also be at the top of my list.
