Where is Kelvin Fletcher's farm? Fans are wondering ahead of the Emmerdale and former Strictly star's return to ITV screens with another instalment of his own reality TV show.
The soap actor and his wife Liz Marsland welcomed twin sons into their family last year, after announcing that they were expecting their third child together with not one but two babies called unique baby names Maximus Crowther and Mateusz Kelvin.
And now Kelvin, who is best known for playing Andy Sugden on Emmerdale, has teamed up with the ITV to continue his farm life journey with Fletcher's Family Farm,
He shared, "A brand new ITV1 series this Autumn bringing you inside our lives as we celebrate and explore this wonderful farming life! With more animals, more laughs, more mistakes and even more children! This adventure really has only just begun. We can’t wait to share it with you! Let the fun begin!"
If you're wanting to see farmer Fletcher in action, we have all you need to know...
Where is Kelvin Fletcher's farm?
Kelvin Fletcher's farm is located on the edge of the Peak District National Park. He purchased the 120-acre property to start a new life with his wife Liz, leaving their Oldham home behind, instead of pursuing a Hollywood dream which had originally been his plan A, following his Strictly Come Dancing win.
But despite growing up on a farm as an actor in Emmerdale, in real life, the star has "zero farming experience" as he revealed, "At the start of all this, Gilly [the farmer next door-turned-teacher] assumed a level of knowledge that I just didn't have. Bless her, but I spent a lot time saying: 'Can we just rewind. What is a ewe? Is it a boy or a girl sheep?' She'd just laugh, but seriously, she needed to break it down to basics."
His first reality series saw the family try to bring the farm back to a state of "working glory" and the highs and lows was all caught on camera. At the time, Kelvin delved into livestock markets, sheep wrangling, and the maintenance of a huge estate with endless outbuildings and an unmanageable cast of animals.
And this new ITV series will feature eight, 60 minute episodes, and will be made by Leeds based eOne indie Daisybeck Studios.
How much is Kelvin worth?
Kelvin Fletcher is worth an estimated £5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. The Oldham-born actor and model took drama classes from the age of seven and his breakthrough role was playing Andy Sugden in ITV soap Emmerdale.
In 2019 he took part in BBC One show Strictly Come Dancing and was crowned winner of the glitterball trophy alongside partner Oti Mabuse.
Aside from acting, he has also done some racing and competed in the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain and the Porsche Supercup series.
Now he'll be getting to grips with driving a tractor...
