Popular reality TV show Celebs On The Farm has been cancelled due to ‘plunging ratings’

‘It’s been put out to pasture!’ Celebs On The Farm ‘is cancelled due to ‘plunging ratings and rising costs’ – just two years after moving from Channel 5 to MTV

Popular reality TV show Celebs On The Farm has been cancelled after three seasons, due to ‘plunging ratings’ and ‘rising costs’. 

The programme, which featured stars such as Love Island’s Hayley Hughes, Montana Brown, drag queen Cheryl Hole and socialite Lady Colin Campbell in its hey day, has not been renewed for a fourth season. 

In the show the usually glamorous cast were tasked with early starts, animal handling and manual work that all come with the territory of farming life.

Farmer Chris eliminated the celebs based on their performance in and out of the paddocks, eventually leaving just one top dog Supreme Champion Farmer. 

The Sun reported that the show has been cancelled due to ‘plunging ratings’ and ‘rising costs’.

A source told The Sun: ‘Celebs On The Farm had a good run but now it’s been put out to pasture. 

‘The last series didn’t bring in the viewing figures telly bosses hoped for and it’s not a cheap series to make. 

‘It has been axed for now and there won’t be a fourth series airing on MTV.’

After moving from Channel 5 to MTV in 2021, the most recent series was won by Atomic Kitten Kerry Katona. 

Celebs On The Farm was hosted by comedian Stephen Bailey and judged by Yorkshire farmer Chris Jeffrey and news of its cancellation will come as a shock for many fans. 

Former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry, 40, admitted living in the countryside helped with her bipolar and she had ‘no down days’ during her two-week stint on the show. 

Kerry said after completing the show: ‘For me, I have bipolar and the whole two weeks I was on the farm I didn’t have one down day.

‘It was just something very therapeutic about being outdoors. If I get down and I struggle in normal life, the one thing that helps bring me back up again is going outside for a walk and getting fresh air.

‘I’m a perfect country girl. I would never live in the city. I live in East Sussex now because I love the outdoors.’
