The BBC dating show, presented by farmer’s daughter and Radio 2 DJ Sara Cox, aims to help lonely members of the agricultural community find their soulmates.
BBC Entertainment has commissioned a second series of Love in the Countryside for BBC Two, with Sara Cox returning to her spiritual home on the farm to play matchmaker once again to of a group of men and women struggling to find a partner to share their rural lives.
A reliance on the land for their livelihoods and being isolated from the urban dating pool has limited their chance of finding romance, but Love in the Countryside is on hand to help them meet their match and overcome the potential difficulties of introducing a partner to the realities of country life.
YAY! We’re so happy - #LoveintheCountryside will be back so series 2. And now we get to use ALL THE FARM EMOJIS! ❤️🐷🚜Here’s @SaraJCox in a field to get you back in the mood. #LITC pic.twitter.com/2Gw2nWAOAx— Love in the Countryside (@CountryLovingTV)
Many urban dwellers long to leave the rat race for a change of scenery and more importantly, a change of pace but will the dream match the reality?
Will a green and pleasant land be more of a wilderness with no wi-fi?
Sara Cox commented: "I’m so excited about dusting off my wellies and heading back out into beautiful British countryside to help find love for more rural romantics."
Know a lovely single farmer who ploughs & drills all night & deserves someone special keeping their bed warm/bringing them a brew up to top field? Give them a wee nudge to take part! I’ll look after them ❤️#LoveInTheCountryside t.co/VPRi629AaH— sara cox (@sarajcox)
