Fletcher's Family Farm | Preview (ITV1)
ITV have commissioned observational documentary series Fletcher's Family Farm, a new series for ITV weekend daytime and primetime ITVBe. The series will be produced by Daisybeck Studios.
The series will follow the former Emmerdale star and winner of Strictly Come Dancing Kelvin Fletcher and family - wife Liz and their four children - as they navigate life as first-generation farmers. The Fletchers bought 120 acres of land in 2021 with livestock including sheep, pigs, goats, alpacas and horeses.
ITV's Leanne Clarke, said: “We are thrilled to have Kelvin, Liz and the whole family showing us the ropes of what it takes to run a working farm. I’m sure it will prove to be a thoroughly entertaining adventure for them and our audience.”
Kelvin and Liz Fletcher said: “When we embarked on this new chapter of our lives, we couldn’t have imagined what an extraordinary journey it would be. Since the arrival of out two new-born twins last year, it has been even more of a rollercoaster ride...
"Navigating farming life with four small kids is certainly a challenge but one full of laughter and unforgettable memories. We are so excited to invite viewers into our lives like never before – we hope to share the beauty and unpredictable joy of life on our farm.”
Series Editor, Ben Harris, from Daisybeck Studios, said: “As first-generation farmers, Kelvin and Liz, have their work cut out, sharing their journey as they strive to make their farm a success whilst balancing the complexities of family life with the lows and highs of farming...
"It will be a revealing and heart-warming insight into farming today. One of the things that strikes me the most is just the joyful nature of this family and how they are embracing this new life. This is going to be a real treat for the audience.”
Fletcher's Family Farm will air on ITV1 and ITVBe from Sunday 15th October.
