Abz Love's long-rumoured television show has been renamed Country Strife: Abz On The Farm and will air on BBC2.

Woohoo! About time!

Reveal broke the news back in January 2014 that Abz and girlfriend Vicky Fallon were filming their own fly-on-the-wall series, but it's taken more than a year for it to come to air.

Now, it's just been announced BBC2 has picked up the show, which follows Abz and Vicky's life in rural Wales as they adjust to country living and working on a farm.

Abz said: "Moving to Wales was a complete shock to the system - the house, the chickens, the horses, the foxes, the cats, the splinters, the leaks, the grass, the gates, the fence, the rain. This being said, I have met some wonderful people with beautiful insights - I currently love my life."

The former 5ive singer and his partner hope to life a life of self-sufficiency and the series will follow them as they learn to live off the farm and adjust their lifestyles.

Tom McDonald, Head of Natural History and Specialist Factual Formats Commissioning, said: "Country Strife is a warm, engaging series following a charming, open-hearted couple try to live the good life against all odds.

"With no knowledge of country life, very limited funds and a series of increasingly outlandish ambitions & plans, Abz and Vicky are in for an often hilarious reality check as they touch down in rural Wales. Through their eyes, the BBC Two audience will get a real sense of what it really takes to make a go of the countryside dream."
