Farmer Wants a Wife: Episode 3

Wednesday 30th September 9.00pm

Louise Redknapp continues to assist Britain’s most eligible farmers as they try to meet the women of their dreams. This week’s participant is 30-year-old Jim, a rugby-loving arable farmer from the Yorkshire Dales. Despite looking like a rock star, this handsome bachelor has yet to find Mrs Right. Can Louise help sow the seeds of love?

“There’s something about a life in the romantic British countryside that really appeals to a lot of ladies,” says Louise Redknapp. “So when we advertised six single farmers on the internet, the response was overwhelming.” More than 2,000 women applied for the role of farmer’s wife.

Across this six-part series, the former Eternal singer aims to unite lovelorn farmers with their ideal mates. Potential partners must live on the farms of their suitors for five days and take on the challenges of modern farm life. Can love blossom in the barnyards and pigsties of rural Britain?

This week’s lonely agriculturist is 30-year-old Jim from Beverley in East Yorkshire. This familyorientated arable farmer is friendly and sociable, and would love to find the right woman to share his idyllic life in the countryside. Along with his farm, Jim also owns a haulage business –which means finding the time to meet the opposite sex has always been a struggle.

To make the most of Jim’s precious time, Louise sends him on a speed-dating event. After chatting to a number of hopefuls, he selects two attractive women to carry through to the next stage. However, when Jim takes the love rivals back to his farm for a taste of country life, it is sparks that begin to fly rather than Cupid’s arrow. With the two girls failing to see eye to eye, will Jim be able to choose between them – or is he destined to return alone to cold-comfort farm once more?
