Matt Baker gives fans an insight into his family’s farm in the hit series Our Farm in the Dales. Away from the show, the 43-year-old has proved to be a man of many talents in recent months by showcasing some of his artwork online. 

Tonight, he shared a video of his latest work, which showed the process of him putting a field shelter together.

In view of his 287,000 Instagram followers, he wrote: “My plan for tonight’s build on Our Farm In The Dales 9pm More4.

“Thank you for all the lovely comments on my drawings – I started sharing my art a while ago on here and you all gave me the confidence to be brave enough to do the cartoon style graphics for our show.

“Thank you X I’ve loved it and thanks @rmv_productions for animating them! – See you tonight!”

The presenter stars on the show alongside wife Nicola, their children Molly and Luke and his parents Michael and Janice.

Matt began giving fans an insight into life in the Durham Dales following his mum’s injury.

Janice needed knee replacement surgery after she was trampled on by a sheep.

Following the incident, she was left in tears after Matt advised her to give up looking after her beloved animals.

He explained: “The Hampshire Downs that we have bred here for years are big sheep. They are on the large end of the scale as far as sheep are concerned.

“I think, now at the stage that you’re in and what has happened…

“This will be hard to hear as you’ve put so much effort into the flock that we’ve got. I just don’t think that they are the way forward for you now.”

Janice agreed that it was time to choose a new flock.

“It’s the first time I’ve actually had to make a decision because of what’s happened.

“It’s the right decision. I know it’s the right decision and you reach a time in your life when you think ‘I really can’t do this anymore’,” she added.
