Matt Baker has finally announced the names of the two lambs that he and his family had recently welcomed to the farm. Last month, the former One Show host asked his Instagram followers to help come up with some names for the new arrivals. And on Tuesday, Matt confirmed he decided to go with something Hollywood inspired - Arnie and Danny! Tagging actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Matt simply wrote: "The Twins… Arnie and Danny." The names are a clear nod to Arnold and his Twins co-star Danny DeVito. "Thanks for your suggestions," he added.

In April, Matt celebrated the arrival by uploading a sweet snapshot showing the lambs, writing: "Twins!! Look at these new arrivals on our farm - What shall we call them???- both boys #twins #lambs #farmlife #newborn #names." Running the farm is a family affair, with Matt's two children – son Luke and daughter Molly – happy to get stuck in with the daily chores. The star previously wrote a day in the life diary for Countryfile's website, and detailed some of the activities his kids enjoy doing, such as numbering the sheep with a can of spray paint, and feeding the animals.
