This week Channel 5 is doing something special for its viewers. The channel that has been championing Yorkshire shows such as Our Yorkshire Farm and The Yorkshire Vet are bringing us Summer on the Farm, where they will be live all week, broadcasting from Cannon Hall Farm.
The show will be presented by Helen Skelton and Jules Hudson with the Nicholson family’s farm, live. Rob Nicholson said: “We have had quite a year not only a hit series of Springtime and won a Broadcast award for best factual lockdown programme but we have also had our book ‘Living Our Best Lives’ in the Sunday Times Bestsellers list and now to be able to do a totally live show is a dream.
“Who’d have thought a few years ago that we would be on telly five nights a week but people are really connecting with us and the animals as it is lifting their spirits and giving them an escape from normal life which at the moment is tough for everyone.”
Amanda Owen, the Yorkshire Shepherdess, and her son Ruben will be foraging for ingredients with Yorkshire chef Tim Bilton. They will be looking for the best summer ingredients to cook up something special.
Peter Wright and Julian Norton from The Yorkshire Vet will also be featuring on the show along with the team at Donaldson’s Vets in Huddersfield. Enjoy the production by Daisybeck Studios from Monday to Friday at 8pm on Channel 5.
