Jay Blades, 52, has previously spoken of his shock at finding out his father, Trevor, has 25 other children. Jay, who didn’t meet his father until he was 21, grew up in London with his mother, Barbara, and half-brother Justin.

When he finally contacted his father, Jay learned he had four siblings, but quickly discovered that wasn’t true.

Speaking in 2020, Jay explained: “I have 25 in total, including six in America, two in Africa and three in Jamaica.

“I’ve met 11 of them and I’m very close with my half-sister, Sophie.”

By the time Jay was 25, he had two children by two different women, and he never considered “settling down” at that time.

However, he began to fear following in his father’s footsteps.

The presenter continued to the Mail on Sunday: “I liked the ladies I was with but things didn’t work out and I moved on, although I still kept in touch with my children.

“I didn’t want to be like my father.”

Jay then had another daughter, named Zola, from his previous marriage to Jade. They are believed to have separated in 2015.

Jay gave fans a rare glimpse into his romance with Lisa in a candid documentary, Learning to Read at 51, which aired in February.

The restaurateur has revealed he didn’t know he was dyslexic until he was 31 and finally learning to read.

As the documentary chronicled her progress, Jay praised Lisa for her support.

He said: “I mostly got by with the help of those around me, people like Lisa.”

Lisa also spoke about Jay on the show and claimed that he came across as confident, but his reading ability was insecure.

She said: “He’s very confident but I know it’s mostly bravado. It’s just a cover.”

The Repair Shop airs Wednesdays at 8pm on BBC One.

Ex-Dearborn Heights Inmate Takes Pickup For Unauthorized One-Day Test Drive – Press & Guide Sun, 08 May 2022 12:11:15 +0000

A 42-year-old Dearborn Heights man, recently released from prison, was arrested on April 30 and charged with motor vehicle theft after taking a pickup truck for an unauthorized one-day test drive.

The man reportedly drove to Erwine Auto Sales, 23706 Van Born Road on the morning of April 29 to test drive a white 2012 Chevy Silverado. He told an employee that he would take the truck to his brother’s repair shop to have it mechanically inspected.

However, after an hour the man had not returned with the vehicle and the phone number he left with the dealership was his mother’s cell phone number. She told an employee that he pulled over with the truck.

The business owner then went to the address provided by the test driver and spoke to his father, who said his son had just been released from prison, and advised the owner of the company to report the van as stolen before his son destroyed it.

The business owner reported the pickup, worth $12,500, as stolen, and it was seized on the Law Enforcement Information Network.

The following morning, April 30, the van, with the dealership stickers still on it, was seen parked at the man’s parents’ home in the 6000 block of Gulley Road.
