The tense final was aired at 8pm on Tuesday (May 18) and saw the three finalists compete to make pearl earrings, as well as a maang tikka bridal headpiece for a client.

Hugo, 24, who works at RTFJ in Wivelsfield, amazed judges Shaun Leane and Solange Azagury-Partridge with his jewellery and had his headpiece design chosen by the client for her wedding.

“So many people to thank,” said Hugo after receiving his trophy.
