Ellie began crying, saying: “Oh my god, I feel really choked by that. It was just so stressful.

“The thought that she would nearly make it then almost not. Oh my gosh.

“Oh my goodness. I can’t believe you managed to do that. Oh my word. What a relief!”

A third added: “That was an amazing episode of #countryfile. Adam literally pushed one lamb back into the womb, so that he could untangle its legs from its twin.

“Ellie was ‘helping’ but was crying with emotion watching Adam. They both did brilliantly. Both lambs saved. I don’t eat lamb btw!”
