The presenter shared the news on social media

The On the Farm festival isn't the only recent news Jules has shared with his fanbase. The presenter also revealed there would be an On the Farm Christmas special.

The author and broadcaster could be seen with his Channel 5 co-stars in a video joking about their "bromance", as he wrote in the caption: "As you can see, the Christmas special is coming very soon!", along with a Santa Clause emoji.

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. So viewers are no doubt looking forward to the festive episode.

One person said: "Love it!!!! You three plus Helen always cheer me up!!! Thank you!!", while another gushed: "Can't actually wait for this!"

Visitors can step into the world of Channel 5's best-loved shows, attend panels and Q&As, watch live demos, take part in a host of making, baking and countryside activities, meet the animals and see their favourite stars perform throughout the weekend. You can buy tickets for the event here.
