Matt returned to his Durham roots along with wife Nicola and the couple's two children to step in and in Our Farm in the Dales ' opening episode viewers saw Matt faced up to some of the vital changes that needed to be made in order to secure the future of the farm.

The fourth and final episode saw the family look ahead to the all important and gruelling lambing season and those fans who'd tuned in to each instalment, were left gutted to learn the series was coming to an end so soon.

But, while they wait with hope for news of a second season, Matt, who has been commentating on Olympic gymnastics for the BBC, has revealed there's another chance to see the first on Channel 4.

The broadcaster hope that Our Farm in the Dales will be a Saturday night ratings winner for them, with episodes kicking off this weekend.

Confirming the news, Countryfile host Matt took to Instagram to post: "Tonight we Make our Channel 4 debut! The first series of Our Farm In The Dales starts on Channel 4 at 7pm!

"Thank you all once again for the support you showed us as a family we may even have some news for those of you who enjoyed the first series very soon."

One of Matt's followers reacted: "Woohoo... glad to watch it all over again," and, on the prospect of a second run, another responded: "So good to hear that you might have some good news! Would be good to watch a second series!"
