This is basically Bake Off with a bit of bark.

Presented by Mel Giedroyc, it sees nine of the most talented craftspeople from across the Irish Sea compete to be crowned Britain's best woodworker.

Each week, the woodworkers compete against each other in the workshop, nestled in the ancient woodland of Wales' Glanusk Estate, where they face a big build that supersizes the skills they've honed at home and a surprise challenge that tests their core skills.

In this opening episode, the woodworkers have two days to complete a bed of dreams that may become the stuff of nightmares.

And in the surprise skills challenge, they must celebrate the fine skill of hand carving, with an invaluable prize for the winner.
