The Dales & May The Best House Win Are Back! Two of Shiver’s key ITV series are on their way back to our screens – both starting on the same day.
A third series of The Dales, fronted by Adrian Edmondson, will air at 8pm on Mondays from May 13th.
In this 12-part series Ade revisits Dales farmers Clive and Amanda Owen and their six children as they face another eventful summer on their remote farm in Swaledale.
Ade also meets community theatre group the Grassington Players as they prepare to put on the world amateur dramatic premiere performance of the Calendar Girls play. Having originally started in the village the play really is coming home so it will be an emotional night for the original ‘calendar girls’ who will be there to witness the gala evening.
During the course of the series Ade also tries his hand at capturing Dales wildlife on camera, is given some lessons in livestock auctioneering and joins Dales vet Amy Swales out on the road as she tends to animals in need.
And we celebrate with a couple who tie the knot at spectacular Ripley Castle and, thanks to the dedicated work of teacher David Fox, we enjoy a Proms in the Park with Sir Tim Rice and the Halle Orchestra as Giggleswick School celebrates its 500th anniversary – with a little help from David’s opera singing daughter.
The Dales is series produced by Sarah Ladbury and executive produced by Shiver’s Creative Director, Mark Robinson.
Meanwhile, Shiver’s Rose D’Or nominated daytime show May The Best House Win also returns to our screen, at 2pm earlier on the same day – May 13th.
Over 30 new episodes, narrated as ever by Guy Porritt, we’ll see the latest trends in interior design. So, are hot tubs still in fashion? Does everyone still have their own private Buddha? And is everyone in Britain still going mad for shabby chic?
Along the way we’ll find out each day just what four proud homeowners have to do to win that £1,000 prize.
The sixth series of this Shiver show – which now airs all over the world – is produced by Ruth Gray and executive produced by Mark Robinson.
