This Father's Day, let us take a little time to remember those dads all over the world that spend their spare time doing the things that dads do; changing light bulbs, unclogging sinks, fixing broken stuff, breaking fixed stuff, drilling holes and everything else that the rest of simply have no idea how to do.

But like poor Hal above finds out very quickly, things can get a little overwhelming at times. So, this Father's Day, why not point your dad in the direction of our Help & Advice section? It's jam-packed with handy tips and tricks from things as simple as how to change a light bulb, to how to use dimmer switches and LED bulbs effectively.

It might not necessarily help him with fixing the car or kitchen sink, but we hope that it'll make his other 'job' just that little bit easier...
