We’ll watch as she tackles a number of tasks on the farm, such as creating produce, going on the hunt for edible fungi, rounding up a bull and his herd, and trying out cheesemaking.

Speaking about the one-off special, she said: “Countryfile, for me, is an iconic programme. I was immensely honoured to be asked to be guest editor and loved every moment.

“I am passionate about seeking the very best local produce and how important food education is.  ‘Having grown up during the war, it made me realise the importance of home grown produce’.”

And it sounds like Matt has been teaching her some of his skills, with Mary adding: “I have learnt so much and had no idea that Matt Baker had secret BBQ skills!”
