Matt Baker announces his new reality series
Matt shared the exciting news on Instagram, alongside a sweet video of himself and dog Bob.
He said: “Welcome to Our Farm In The Dales. Big news – I’ve filmed a series back on our farm in Durham with all our animals and my family!
I can’t wait for you all to see the place I grew up.
“It’s been brilliant. I can’t wait for you all to see the place I grew up, it’s been great fun as I’ve also produced and directed it.
“I’ll keep you posted but as a heads up it’s coming to More4 soon.”
What is Our Farm In The Dales about?
The show is set to feature Matt’s wife Nicola Mooney and their two children, Luke and Molly.
Meanwhile, the star’s parents, Janice and Mike, will also take part.
During the four episodes, Matt returns to Durham following an accident involving his mum.
Viewers will also get to know the different farm animals – from the adorable miniature donkeys and the litter of Cairn Terrier pups.
In addition, Matt shared: “This is without doubt the most personal TV show I’ve ever made. Filming on the farm where I grew up with my whole family has been a wonderful and unique experience.
“It’s also my producing and directorial debut with our new production company so it couldn’t be more personal. A huge thank you to Sean at More4, it’s amazing what can happen from a conversation in a barn.”
Furthermore, Sean Doyle, Deputy Head of Formats & Features at Channel 4, said: “We are delighted that Matt and his family will be opening to the doors to their beautiful rural farm on More4.
“The series is a warm, funny, and often emotional look at what it takes for a close-knit family, ably assisted by an eclectic mix of animals, to pull together in the face of adversity.”
Why did Matt Baker quit The One Show?
The popular host announced he was stepping down from the BBC show back in December 2019.
However, he officially left the show in April 2020.
At the time, Matt said: “The One Show has been a massive part of my life for almost a decade. I will be leaving this green sofa in the spring.
“It’s time to give somebody else the opportunity to see how big-hearted and generous you, our One Show viewers, really are.”
He went on to say: “I’m excited about other opportunities that come my way but most of all I’m looking forward to having dinner with my family and being able to put my kids to bed.”
Meanwhile, Matt continues to work for the BBC as a presenter on Countryfile.
