I help restore people's treasured items but sleep on a mattress on the floor reveals Repair Shop star | The Sun

A REPAIR Shop star has revealed she sleeps on a mattress on the floor.

Suzie Fletcher is known for helping to restore items for the public back to their former glory on the BBC One show.

However, the leather worker has revealed her own home is in need of repair.

The 61-year-old has admitted her house doesn't even have a bed.

She said: "I have a mattress on the floor.

“But that’s fine, I only have myself to please. It’s very easy to get weighed down by a lot of responsibility and the bigger the property, the more you have to do."

She continued to Kay Adams' How To Be 60 podcast: “I like being able to do something on the spur of the moment and not have to worry about the lawn being mowed or a bedroom decorated.

"I have one bedroom, that is all."

Suzie joined The Repair Shop five years ago after returning to the UK from America.

The star recently opened up on living in an abusive marriage 'without any support'.

During an interview with Lorraine Kelly, Suzie said she felt "trapped" in a forceful marriage with her ex-husband, Rob while living in America.

They met when Suzie travelled to the United States in her 30s, and married three months after she moved to Denver.

But she told Lorraine that the relationship began to crumble because of Rob's abusive behaviour.

Suzie said: "It's really difficult with some people as everyone has their faults, but as I got to know him better I realised he was massively traumatised as a child."

"That brought on some coping mechanisms which are not exactly healthy and he was using alcohol to help numb the pain, and I did learn as time went on how massively damaged he was."
