Springtime On The Farm | Preview (Channel 5)

Spring has sprung, and the award-winning Springtime on the Farm is back for the biggest lambing season yet, as Channel 5 rolls up its sleeves, and mucks in, delivering an avalanche of new life in a week of non-stop thrills and spills.

Join Helen Skelton, Jules Hudson, JB Gill and host farmers Rob and Dave Nicholson as they celebrate the joys of spring with more baby animals than ever before.

As well as our action-packed lambing ‘maternity ward’ at Cannon Hall Farm, near Barnsley, we also welcome goats, miniature donkeys, pigs, alpacas and even a few special guest stars from Yorkshire’s zoos (baby tigers and rhinos, anyone?).

Helen and Jules take centre stage in the lambing shed, delivering up-to-the minute news on the latest cavalcade of births, as well as checking in on farms up and down the country, as the countryside prepares for the most exciting time of the year.

But it’s not all human and animal dramas - JB gets away from it all to experience some natural wonders of the countryside and coastline. From ‘bathing’ in the dawn chorus, to exploring the healing power of spring tides, JB brings a sense of countryside Zen to proceedings. And the Yorkshire Vets also leave the farm behind to get hands-on and up-close with some considerably more exotic species than they are used to.

From adorable newborns to breathtaking moments of nature's miracles, our cameras capture every second. It’s the warmest, most fun and emotional time of the year – so grab your wellies and an old coat and prepare to get stuck in!

Springtime On The Farm returns Monday 15th April at 8pm on Channel 5.
