Strictly Come Dancing winner Kelvin Fletcher is set to return to screens for another instalment of Fletchers' Family Farm.

The ITV reality show follows the former Emmerdale actor in his new farming role on the family farm in the picturesque Peak District, filmed alongside wife Liz and their four children.

Season one debuted in October last year, with ITV announcing today (May 29) that a second series will air later this winter.

"We're incredibly excited to return to filming for the second series of Fletchers' Family Farm," says Kelvin. "The response from our viewers has been truly heartwarming and inspiring!"

The Fletchers have teased more adventures in the second series, with the family welcoming a herd of pregnant cows to their farm. Viewers will also see how the Fletchers fare during lambing season and their visit to the county fair.

Following the success of the first series, the family of six returned to screens in December last year for a Christmas special which saw some alpacas arrive at the farm.

Season two will feature 10 hour-long episodes - up from eight episodes in season one - and will air on ITV1 and be available to stream after on ITVBe.

Liz called it a "genuine honour" to welcome viewers back inside their farm, with ITV's Assistant Entertainment Commissioner Leanne Clarke saying the network were thrilled to renew the show for another series.

"Last series was an exciting one, as well as being extremely entertaining and insightful for viewers at home," she says. "We can’t wait to have them all back on our screens!"

Fletchers' Family Farm returns to ITV1 and ITVBe this winter.
