"Everybody's always asking me: 'What am I doing next on television?' Well, this is a big one, because it's based on our family farm – the whole family are in it; all our animals are in it," Matt explained.

"It's in the edit at the moment, so I'll keep you posted, but what I will say is it's coming soon to More4."
