The BBC Two series, Love In The Countryside, will see Sara Cox return to her own farming roots in the hope of helping single people live and work in the country - and perhaps, find them love with others who have a dramatically different lifestyle.

The show wants to select eight city dwellers who will mingle with country folk - from dairy farmers to rural vets, farriers to pig breeders, they will not only be keen to see if they can meet their match, but also to introduce a potential partner to the true realities of life in the country.

The show’s producers are looking for singletons interested in in not just dating someone from a more remote location, but looking for a new way of life.
