All Creatures Great and Small star Callum Woodhouse has revealed that Siegfried’s secret-keeping could “blow up” in either his or Tristan’s faces as the Yorkshire vet continues to conceal the fact that his brother actually failed his exams.

During last year’s All Creatures Great and Small Christmas special, Siegfried (Samuel West) found out that Tristan hadn’t passed his veterinary exams, but decided to lie to his brother, telling him that he had indeed qualified.

Speaking to RadioTimes.com and other press, Woodhouse teased what viewers can expect from the storyline in series two.

When asked whether the secret will come out at some point, Woodhouse said: “Well yeah, I mean it’s certainly on the cards.

“You can’t keep pretending to be a vet, I think it’s technically illegal to be doing all this work without an actual licence. It’s inevitably going to come out one way or the other.

“Whether it blows up in both or just one of their faces remains to be seen but I’ve really enjoyed deepening that relationship with Siegfried and Sam West is, I mean, what an actor to have that relationship with.”

All Creatures Great and Small returns with a brand new series on Channel 5 later this month, with Nicholas Ralph returning as James Herriot, the newest vet at Skeldale House.

Samuel West, Anna Madeley, Callum Woodhouse and Rachel Shenton are reprising their roles in the upcoming episodes, while Patricia Hodge is set to take on the role of Mrs Pumphrey following the death of Dame Diana Rigg last year.
