This may possibly be the best news I've heard all day and it's not even 10am yet:



QUOTE
In a brand new series for BBC Two, Country Strife: Abz On The Farm, former pop-star Abz Love will swap the luxuries of his life in the city for the good life, as he and his partner Vicky leave the music business behind them and head to rural Wales to live off the land.

Commissioned by Kim Shillinglaw, Controller BBC Two and BBC Four and Tom McDonald, Head of Commissioning, Natural History and Specialist Factual Formats, the series will follow the two novice farmers as they set about buying and renovating their very own smallholding. With a little help from their new neighbours they’ll take on a world of mud, rain, livestock and vegetable planting and learn what it takes to survive in the countryside on a shoestring.

Abz and Vicky are determined to realise their dream of self-sufficiency, but with plans bigger than their pockets and very limited farming know-how, will their ambitions and enthusiasm withstand the harsh reality of living off-grid?

Abz says: “Moving to Wales was a complete shock to the system - the house, the chickens, the horses, the foxes, the cats, the splinters, the leaks, the grass, the gates, the fence, the rain. This being said, I have met some wonderful people with beautiful insights - I currently love my life.”

Head of Natural History and Specialist Factual Formats Commissioning, Tom McDonald says “Country Strife is a warm, engaging series following a charming, open-hearted couple try to live the good life against all odds – with no knowledge of country life, very limited funds and a series of increasingly outlandish ambitions & plans, Abz and Vicky are in for an often hilarious reality check as they touch down in rural Wales. Through their eyes, the BBC Two audience will get a real sense of what it really takes to make a go of the countryside dream.”

Country Strife: Abz On The Farm (3 x 30) was commissioned by Tom McDonald, Head of Commissioning Natural History and Specialist Factual Formats. It was produced by Tin Can Island for the BBC and the Executive Producer is Andrea Cornes.


Full press release

I cannot wait to see this. Abz was an absolute joy to watch on The Big Reunion - and seems like a nice guy to boot - so more of his curly carrots is just what I need. biggrin.gif
