I'm absolutely puzzled by it all!

I know they are planning on being self-sufficient but how can they actually afford to buy the house and set it all up?

I might be too invested in this as i'm now concerned Abz was a bit hasty in his decision to stop touring to do this.

Maybe I should just start watching decent tv.

I can't believe I have missed this. I would definitely have watched it after seeing 5ive on the Big Reunion a couple of years ago. Abz had had the most colourful post-boyband life of the lot of them.

He had been the toy boy of a rich older woman who showered him with gifts (he said) and had been in trouble with booze, drugs etc. as well as getting a load of insane neck tattoos. Then he said he was living in Lincolnshire with his (new, not the rich older woman) girlfriend and a bunch of horses.

I would like to know why they have relocated to Wales. Perhaps his older lady followed him to the fens, throwing diamond 'timepieces' at him. Or maybe the Lincolnshire farmers didn't like his rapping. Who knows?

I love these two, they seem so genuine. I'm so hoping it all works out for them but did wonder why he didn't stick with the touring for a little bit longer. Don't sell the horses! I'm hoping the lovely neighbour will rent them a bit of his land.

Addicted to this programme already. My mum has a similar ramshackle smallholding in Wales and I'd never want to live like that but kudos to anyone who does make it work for them.

For a second I got confused and thought you were referring to the new cbeebies farm programme with the fella from JLS.

Obviously, the career choice post-boy band is farming! Who knew?

I'm holding out for Gary Barlow to open his petting zoo (that sounds like a euphemism but wasn't meant to!).

I quite liked this programme. I thought the bungalow was fairly cheap. I felt sorry for them after Poppy's visit, as she was quite negative. Although they should have done their homework about the farm also.
