Jules shared a witty video announcing the news

Friday On the Farm has been providing some much needed entertainment on Channel 5 in recent weeks. Jules fronts the show alongside Helen Skelton, which sees the team visit the farmers at Cannon Hall Farm in South Yorkshire to see inside their busy countryside lives.

Due to coronavirus restrictions, filming for Friday On the Farm and This Week On the Farm, has been a challenge for the team and the farmers ended up shooting a lot of the content themselves.

Discussing the show earlier this year, Robert Nicholson, one of the three brothers who help run the farm, told The Star online: "We are excited that we can showcase our little corner of South Yorkshire to a wider audience. Due to the lockdown, our brother Richard has done quite a lot of the filming and Dave and I have picked up some presenting skills, so at a tough time, it's been a welcome distraction."
