‘Got to toughen up’ Kelvin Fletcher’s wife Liz calls out ‘squeamish’ behaviour on farm

Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure kicked off on BBC One and the soap star’s big move seemed to run far from smoothly. Between lost rabbits, fainting scares and one too many maggots, Kelvin himself admitted that the whole process was “a bit overwhelming”. 

The show sees Kelvin, 38, up root his family from their urban home in Oldham, Greater Manchester, and trade it in for a chance to start up their own farm in the Peak District. 

Throughout the first episode, both Kelvin and his wife Liz Fletcher admitted they felt “overwhelmed” by the amount of work there was to do, given that neither actor has any previous farming experience. 

Towards the end of the first episode, Kelvin had to get his hands dirty when he was tasked with deworming a flock of sheep by his farm-savvy neighbour Gilly.  

Gilly seemed bemused by Kelvin’s reluctance to get stuck in, as he found that one of the sheep’s feet was rotten.

The former Strictly champion then appeared horrified as Gilly asked him to remove maggots from the sheep’s foot. 

The actor looked disgusted as he went in for a first try, before saying: “I can’t do that. It’s full of blood and everything.”

As he asked Gilly to take over, Liz pointed out Kelvin would have to learn to deal with the less attractive parts of farm life. 

She remarked: “He is very squeamish. Like, he can’t look at blood, can’t look at needles… Anything like that. But he has to. He’s got to toughen up.”

“Is he always such a blinking wuss?” Gilly asked as Kelvin walked away to have a sit down away from the smell. 

As the day went on, Liz decided to grill Kelvin about his decision to up root their family. 

“Do you want this lifestyle?” she asked. “Do you want to be doing this?” 

“Is that a serious question?” Kelvin asked. 

“Yeah!” Liz continued. “You don’t like looking at maggots, you don’t want to cut their hooves, you’re passing out over the ammonia. Is this the lifestyle you want?” 

At this, Kelvin appeared to walk away in a huff with a simple “yeah”. 

Later on, the couple reconciled with a hug, as Liz reassured Gilly with a “we’re friends again”. 

Episode 2 of Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure airs next Monday at 8:30pm on BBC One.
