The Yorkshire Vet makes history with never-before-seen operation to save dying animal's life

THE Yorkshire Vet star Matt Smith will attempt to make history by performing a never-seen-before operation during Wednesday night's episode.

Fans were thrilled to see Julian Norton and Peter Wright make a return for the new Channel 5 series.


The duo, who have been a staple on the show since it began in 2015, are used to having the cameras following them around as they carry out their day-to-day jobs.

However, in the last series, viewers were introduced to three new faces, who were not familiar with being in the limelight.

Veterinarians Matt, Shona Searson and David Melleney are all relatively new faces to the programme and, throughout the current series, the trio have been appearing more.

During tonight's instalment, viewers will watch as Matt attempts to save the life of a sheep called Star.

The vet will use a revolutionary procedure to fit a prosthetic limb on Star, making it one of the first in the UK.

The episode will see Matt, who works from Donaldson’s Vets, called out to tend to Star who was born with a deformed back leg.

The vet hopes to give the sheep, who belongs to Jake Ratcliffe’s animal sanctuary in Huddersfield, a new lease of life.

Speaking about the life-saving operation, Matt explained: "This is a first for me it’s the first time I’ve done this on a sheep but I’ve got a plan."

Without the life-saving limb, Matt believes Star would not survive long term.

In order to prepare the lamb for the new limb, the TV personality has to carry out a procedure and then cast the new limb.
