Matt Baker, 43, stepped down from his role on BBC’s The One Show at the end of March last year. The dad-of-two has continued to front Countryfile but he is now embarking on a new reality series alongside his wife Nicola Mooney and the couple’s two children; Luke, 11, and nine-year-old Molly.

Taking to Instagram, Matt sat alongside his beloved Border Collie, Bob, to share the big news.

In view of his 252,000 followers, the Countryfile host uploaded a video, saying: “Exciting news everybody. I’ve been filming a new series.

“People are always asking me what am I doing next on television.”

He continued: “Well, it is a big one, because it’s based on our family farm. The whole family are in it. All of our animals are in it.

“It’s in the edit at the minute but I’ll keep you posted, but what I will say is that it’s coming soon.”

Alongside the short video clip, Matt penned: “Welcome to ‘Our Farm In The Dales’. Big news – I’ve filmed a series back on our farm in Durham with all our animals and my family!

“It’s been brilliant. I can’t wait for you all to see the place I grew up, its been great fun as I’ve also produced and directed it. I’ll keep you posted but as a heads up it’s coming to More4 soon #farm #family #durhamdales.”

The new four-part reality series called Matt Baker: Our Farm in the Dales, will give viewers a rare insight into the Countryfile presenter’s life behind the scenes.

Fans flocked to comment on the post, as many people shared their delight over the exciting news.

One wrote: “This is such great news! Thanks for the heads-up on this programme, it’ll be so entertaining #MoreMatt #MoreBob.”

Another commented: “That’s wonderful. It’ll be great to see your home and animals. I’ll watch it.”

“Wonderful news, so looking forward to a great escape to the country,” a third added.

The new series follows Matt through a difficult period in his life, after he was forced to move his young family up north to Durham hills to support his parents.

It comes after his mum Janice was injured in an accident and the former One Show presenter made the decision to relocate his family.

“This is, without doubt, the most personal TV show I’ve ever made,” Matt told Radio Times.

“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.”

He added: “It’s amazing what can happen from a conversation in a barn.”

Matt, who hosted The One Show alongside Alex Jones, quit The One Show after nine years at the show’s helm.

At the time, he said he’s looking forward to “putting his kids to bed” after presenting the weekday evening chat show for close to a decade.

The presenter will still continue his slot on the farming and agricultural show, Countryfile.
