You may recognise him from ‘Find a Fortune’ (ITV1), ‘This Morning’ (ITV1), ‘The Live Six Show’ (Sky One), ‘Holiday on a Shoestring’ (BBC1) and ‘The Disney Club’ (ITV1).

Richard speaks about his new venture: “...Totally new to crafting and eager to learn all about it. I think crafters are so clever and artistic and I’m in total awe of their creative skills. I’m really excited to join The Craft Store as it’s such a lovely, relaxed place filled with really nice people. Like one giant family… with added stamps, dies and foiling sheets!”

Richard Orford has worked non-stop in the British television industry for a quarter of a century as an extraordinarily versatile performer - specialising in humour, getting the best out of people onscreen and conveying subjects in a fun an populist way that viewers can relate and engage with.
