A Herefordshire PIG farmer is playing a new TV series that helps people living in the countryside find love.

Love in the Countryside starts on BBC2 at 9:00 pm Wednesday night and sees UK rural folks use the help of farmer's daughter Sara Cox in her search for love.

In the six-part series, viewers see Wendy Scudamore from southwest Herefordshire looking for love.

The 60-year-old, who lives near the border with Wales, said, "I've been single for a long time, I saw the advertisement for the show on Twitter and just thought," That looks funny "and I'm giving it a stupid comment on being desperate and single, and would like to try to accept me.

"I thought that even if I did not find love, it would be a fun experience."

She said the filming had been over a year and Wendy said she enjoyed it and added, "It was a really good experience and I met some nice people."

Wendy has been single for eight years and thinks it's time to meet someone new.

She said, "I took a few shots, but over the years nothing has come to fruition."

While Wendy has never been blind, she had a dating disaster: "After introducing myself to a local person whom I had made friends with quite well, I took the courage to ask him to go a mile. "

Wendy has worked with animals and livestock all her life and started farming in Herefordshire 26 years ago.

Wendy said, "I've always been interested in horses when I was younger, I took a break and had my four kids, I was always an animal fanatic.

"When I was not working with animals, I moved to the farm, took sheep and got into pigs.

"I love it, outdoor life is for me."

And what did your four children think (21, 24, 31 and 33)? She said, "They're all in a pretty good mood, the youngster was a bit skeptical at first, but they're all looking forward to it." "Reality TV" was a shock. "

However, under strict orders not to reveal whether she had met the man of her dreams, she said: "I said I am looking for a man who is optimistic, a half-full sort with good sense of humor."
