More4 have commissioned a four-part series which will see Hugh Fearney-Whittingstall return to River Cottage, according to reports from The Sun.

River Cottage first on Channel 4 in 1999 under the title 'Escape To River Cottage' and saw Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and friends in his Dorset cottage, as he forages for wild food, grows his own produce and rears his own stock.

The new series will explore the public’s "post-pandemic mindset" of exploring new places and supporting local independent stores. Show regulars forager John Wright and fire-cook Gill Mellor will also appear when the new series begins next month.

Hugh said: "It’s brilliant to be back doing what I love the most — gathering the very best ingredients from land and sea, meeting inspiring growers and producers, and making delicious food to share with friends and neighbours...

"It’s a life we’ve all been missing and it’s time to recognise and celebrate just how much it can do for us to live and cook a little closer to nature."

River Cottage (title tbc) will air on More4 this June. This story was originally reported by The Sun.
