‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judge Len Goodman recently visited Hampshire Farmers’ Markets award winning producer Lyburn Cheeses to film part of his new TV programme ‘Holiday of my lifetime,’  bringing his  celebrity guest Janet Ellis, more recently known for her appearances on Channel 5’s ‘The Wright Stuff’ and remembered by millions as a long time presenter of Blue Peter.

‘Holiday of my lifetime’ is a popular daytime television show that takes well-loved famous faces back in time to recreate their childhood holidays.  Janet Ellis had spent her childhood holidays at a dairy farm at nearby Romsey and wanted to revisit this happy childhood memory.

Mike Smales of Lyburn Cheeses commented:  “The BBC were filming for a few hours with Len and Janet enjoyed making some of our Stoney Cross cheese and the programme is due to be transmitted some time in October.”
