Christmas on the Farm saw all things festive as hosts Jules Hudson and Helen Skelton got Channel 5 viewers in the festive spirit. During the episode, JLS singer JB Gill went on a mission to explore the unique artisan crafts which are handmade in time for Christmas decorating. Tonight, he was exploring the craft of glass bauble making and even got to make one of his own, which he gifted to the farm. However, his handcrafted bauble didn’t last very long as Jules accidentally dropped it, leaving Helen to tell him off.

JB explained: “One of the highlights of my year is decorating the Christmas Tree with the whole family.

“You need tinsel, you’ve got to have a star, but it’s not a Christmas tree without some baubles, but not just any baubles, for me, they have got to be glass.”

Looking back at the history of baubles, JB revealed: “We’ve been decorating trees since Roman times.

“But it wasn’t until Prince Albert brought over a German tradition that the bauble craze took off.

“When this illustration of the Royal Family with a tree adorned with glass baubles was published in the 19th century, they immediately became fashionable, and baubles were here to stay.”

Speaking to one of the expert glass bauble crafters, JB said: “They’re incredibly beautiful, I mean, look at this blue one, but glass baubles are given way to plastic ones over the years, haven’t they?”

She explained: “Plastic ones are okay, but glass ones are the truest form of colour because you have the reflection of the glass and the light’s and the colour, and it makes them look really opulent!”

“Are they quite difficult to make?” JB asked to which she told him it wasn’t and then offered for him to make his own.

Quickly taking the offer, JB set off with one of the expert crafters to create his own glass bauble and was impressed with how easy it was.

After he was finished, he had to wait for the bauble to completely set and asked if it could be sent back to the farm.

As the video finished, Helen said: “What a beautiful bauble, you know you worked really hard on that.

“He’s so giving, he could have taken that home to his family, but no, he thought I’ll send it up to Jules and Helen and Rob and Dave.

“We thought we could hang it on our tree, maybe we would have given it to a deserving child or something afterwards, but unfortunately, this happened.”

Just before the video rolled, Jules could be heard exclaiming: “I can’t watch…”

During the VT, Jules drops the bauble, to which Helen cries out: “I said to you don’t drop the bauble, I said don’t drop it.

“That’s JB’s glass bauble that he crafted, and I said don’t hand it to me!” as Jules replied: “It has literally fallen off.”

Back on the farm, Helen turned to Jules and said: “You’re the sensible one, you’re the grown-up. If there is anything responsible that needs to be done, it’s Jules!”

Feeling guilty about the incident, Jules said: “Why was it given to me? JB, I am so, so sorry, can we move on from that?”

Helen refused to let the incident rest and teased: “No, I am never going to let you forget that! I just wish we could show him the other mistakes, but he’s too rude!”
