Matt opened up about the new series in a recent interview with Radio Times. "My dad told me that Mum had had an accident," he said. "We went straight back home. The last thing you want is to see your parents struggling, and Mum was very vulnerable."

On including the reality of his mum's frightening accident, Matt said: "The hardest part for me was filming her in that situation. I've never seen her like that."

Both he and his wife took their time to discuss whether they should allow the cameras to tell his family's story during such a personal time. "We were never planning on doing a series on the farm," he explained. "It was a big decision. My children have never been put in the public eye at all but they're at the age now where they can make their own decisions."
