JLS star JB Gill puts the moo into music as he gets some tips on his future farming career as a guest on this week's edition of Countryfile.
The singer learns about livestock by meeting Highland cattle among other breeds featured in the BBC rural affairs show to be screened on Sunday.
The 26-year-old - whose hits include Everybody In Love - has a ten-acre holding in Kent and is keen to add further stock to his small collection of chickens.
So the show's resident farmer Adam Henson took him down to his own 1,600-acre tenanted Cotswold farm which is home to more than 2,000 animals to give him a taste of what he can expect.
JB helped out with a Gloucester Old Spot sow which has recently had piglets and two new-born lambs that needed feeding, in addition to meeting the Highland cattle.
And when he expressed an interest in raising deer, Henson took him to a Cotswold venison farm to see the animals at close hand.
:: Countryfile is screened at 7pm on Sunday on BBC One.
