Matt Baker: Our Farm in the Dales is a brand new documentary series for More 4 which explores a challenging period in Matt's life. 

Confirming the news to Radio Times, he'll be taking viewers behind the scenes of his family farm where he lived in Durham hills to support his parents after his mum suffered a serious injury.

Speaking about the series, Matt said: "This is, without doubt, the most personal TV show I’ve ever made. Filming on the farm where I grew up with my whole family has been a wonderful and unique experience and it’s also my producing and directorial debut. It’s amazing what can happen from a conversation in a barn.”

Here's everything we know so far...
