In an interview with the Sunday Post back in 2018, Jules revealed that Tania had helped him to have a meet and greet with a group of fans, explaining: "I spotted a Jules Hudson Fan section on Twitter but ignored it. Then my wife said I should call the woman who runs it. I’d love to have been a fly on her wall that day. She organised a meet up with the fans which was lovely. One even travelled from Australia." 

According to Jules' website, the show's host is also a "keen countryman and craftsman". It reads: "Jules spends his spare time renovating his period home and garden in Herefordshire and rescuing old furniture."

He previously opened up about his love of the countryside, saying: "I like the pace of life, the space and the shared fellowship. What’s revolutionised country living is next day delivery. It doesn’t matter if there are no shops nearby now as long as you have the internet."
