LOVE IN THE COUNTRYSIDE RETURNS TO BBC TWO FOR A SECOND SERIES TO HELP MORE COUNTRY SINGLETONS FIND LOVE

A reliance on the land for their livelihoods and being isolated from the urban dating pool has limited their chance of finding romance, but Love in the Countryside is on hand to help them meet their match and overcome the potential difficulties of introducing a partner to the realities of country life.

Presenter Sara Cox will help our rurals take their first steps on the rocky road of romance. Will they meet ‘the one’ and how will the experience test their dates’ desire to swap their urban existence for a more bucolic lifestyle?

Ultimately, will they find Love in the Countryside?

Sara Cox commented: ‘I’m so excited about dusting off my wellies and heading back out into beautiful British countryside to help find love for more rural romantics.’

Carla-Maria Lawson, Commissioning Editor for BBC Entertainment says: ‘It’s exciting to be offering another opportunity for lonesome singles in the countryside to be matched to those charmed by the possibility of a rural way of life and love. I’m looking forward to watching Sara work her magic.’

Patrick Holland, Controller BBC Two added: “Love in the Countryside brought a fresh tone and joy to BBC Two’s evening schedule and with Sara Cox at the helm, we are excited to see how the series can grow and develop.”

Neil Smith, Managing Director of Boundless said: “We all need love and this format helps it blossom in parts other dating shows cannot reach”.
