“After lots of auditions, I ended up getting the job,’ he laughs.

“At first I was only working once a month, then when it went prime time, the viewing figures went up to six million, and that was that.
“But when the BBC chuck me in the bin – which they will do sooner or later – I will just go back to being a farmer. That’s my proper job.”
Adam and his long term partner Charlotte met when they were teenagers while at school.
The couple went on to have two children together Ella and Alfie although they never married.
Adam and partner Charlotte raised Ella and Alfie on their far as Adam says he wanted to have a childhood like his.
Adam told the Mirror: “Getting back to nature was always important, and my kids have grown up on the farm too.
“Even though one is going to work at an events company and my son wants to go into finance, they could both lamb a ewe. They’re very capable.
While Adam has said he loves his job on Countryfile, he has also told of how the job has its downsides.

Speaking to the Express last year, Adam said: “My only downside would be that I’m away from home a lot.
“I film two days a week, and that takes me away from the family and away from the farm. Farming is my proper job.”
Adam added: “Television is a bit of farm diversification and the old adage there’s no place like home rings true to me.
“That’s where my business, my family, my life is.
“Although it is hugely pleasurable job to go around the UK meeting farmers and finding out about fascinating businesses, the downside is it takes me away from home more than I would ideally like.
“I won’t last forever on television, and as soon as they drop me in the bin, I’ll just go back to being a farmer.”
Countryfile will continue tonight on BBC One at 7.15pm.
