A new series At Home With The Greens on Channel 5 featuring the oldest working farmers on their Yorkshire farm has been commissioned by the Yorkshire championing channel, after 94 and 72 year olds Jean and Steve Green, feature on popular show The Yorkshire Vet.
A new four-part series set to celebrate the pair is set to be produced by Daisybeck Studios who also produce The Yorkshire Vet, which is now in its 17th series and have previously produced Our Yorkshire Farm.
The show will follow Jean and Steve as they take a look back at their life as well as creating one or two new memories, according to the Yorkshire Post.
Daisybeck Studios posted a picture to their socials and fans of the show were quick to share the love. With plenty commenting how much they love the pair – and it’s easy to see why.
The Yorkshire Vet favourites Jean and Steve Green have lived and work on their farm since they were married over 40 years ago and the new series will be a celebration of their life together on the farm.
Peter Wright, star of The Yorkshire Vet said: “Mr and Mrs Green are so popular with our viewers and having been their vet for more than 40 years I can see why, their simplicity of life and their no-nonsense approach has won the hearts of the nation.”
Commissioning editor and VP for non-scripted UK originals for Channel 5 and Paramount +, Denise Seneviratne, said: “There’s no one quite like Mr and Mrs Green reflected on TV and our audiences have really embraced them. This series gives us a chance to enjoy their very traditional, often unconventional and thoroughly joyful way of life.”
Mike Sinclair, series editor for The Yorkshire Vet, said: ‘Our viewers absolutely adore the Greens. They go down a storm whenever they’re featured in an episode. They’re loved because they’re no nonsense, traditional Yorkshire farmers, who somehow seem totally unaffected by the modern world.
“They were clients of Alf Wight, the original Yorkshire Vet better known as James Herriot, and they have a special friendship with Alf’s former protégé Peter Wright, which really resonates with people who enjoy the series.”
The four-part series is set to air later this year.
