AFTER years of playing a farmer on Emmerdale, one soap star is trying out for real.
BBC show Kelvin Fletcher’s Big Farm Adventure will show the actor’s new life in the country.
Where was Kelvin Fletcher’s Big Farm Adventure filmed?
The new six-part documentary is filmed on Kelvin’s farm which can be found in the Peak District.
The Strictly Come Dancing champion swapped urban life to start farming in the countryside in 2020.
He moved there with his wife and their two young children Marnie and Milo.
Their 120-acre farm has an 18th-Century cottage, outbuildings, 20 sheep, three pigs and three alpacas.
The family moved from their home in Oldham to the farm on the edge of the Peak District National Park.
What has Kelvin said about his farm?
In an interview with the Radio Times, Kelvin said it was a “big step”, but they were ready to “embrace something new”.
He added: “Often life is a case of always being on to the next thing, and I guess lockdown was a real pause when you couldn’t help but be present and reflect.
“Sometimes I do wonder whether we’ve taken on too much.
“But I can’t imagine us not doing this now. It’s ignited something inside me, and I love it.”
When does Kelvin Fletcher’s Big Farm Adventure start?
This fly-on-the-wall documentary kicks off this Monday (January 17, 2022).
You can watch it from 8.30pm on BBC One.
The show will run for six episodes, all at the above time, and on Monday nights.
After they have aired you can catch them on the BBC iPlayer.
Announcing the show, Kelvin told his Instagram followers: “So happy to finally announce this!” he told fans earlier this month on Instagram.
“If you’ve been sat there wondering what these random farming and outdoor pictures are all about well now you know!
“We have literally jumped in at the deep end and bought a farm!
“A reluctant Wife, 2 crazy kids and a Husband with knowledge of farming you could write on the back of a stamp! What could possibly go wrong?!”
