Your perfect partner to wake up with by Presenter Ben Murray

I am not a morning person. I like a warm bed, daylight and love nothing more than hitting the snooze button on my alarm for “just another 5 minutes”. You would have had to drag me kicking and screaming from under my feather duvet unless it was a dire emergency... and even then the fireman would have had to 'talk me down' while the flames licked around the base of my bed. At least that used to be the case until a few months ago.

Nowadays the alarm rings at 3am and I'm up and out like a shot, jumping in my car and making a beeline for the HobbyMaker studio for 5am, bright eyed and bushy tailed ready to catch up with the team. The Wake Up With HobbyMaker crew are like family now and catching up over a coffee while we discuss the show ahead sets us all up for the day.

And it's not just the studio team and guests who are like family. Many of the viewers too have become like friends, messaging the studio to tell us about their latest crafting adventure, their recent hobby related disaster or simply sharing photos of what Percy the Siamese cat has been up to for the rest of the world.

I absolutely love presenting the 'Wake Up' shows. The pace is so different to the rest of the day. From having a morning catch up with a crafty brew, chatting with our lovely guests and introducing the crafty crew to the viewers who now seem to know them all by name.

That's not all, of course. They say the early bird catches the worm and as far as Wake Up With HobbyMaker goes, that couldn't be more true. I love the fact that not only do we get some amazing early morning deals to offer but often exclusive launches or discounts which our 'Wake Up' viewers see first! With the atmosphere, friends and offers, it's almost like being part of an exclusive early morning club that meet up before we all head off to work or drop the kids to school. A bit of special time that's just for us.

Of course, the great news is that despite my 3am alarm, you can still enjoy all the fun with your favourite presenters, fabulous crafty crew and amazing guests right from the comfort of your lovely warm bed (naturally fuelled with a hot coffee and golden brown toast). Enjoy!
