BBC Countryfile goes live at Blenheim Palace

Fans will come face to face with their favourite TV presenters over the weekend as the first BBC Countryfile Live takes place at Blenheim Palace.

Viewers of the BBC's rural-focused series are set to flock to the Oxfordshire residence after the four-day event kicked off on Thursday.

Countryfile presenters including John Craven, Matt Baker, Anita Rani and Ellie Harrison opened the show, and devotees will be able to meet them throughout its run.

The hosts will be set up in a purpose-built oak barn where visitors will learn their TV secrets and watch them compete in a daily battle of the brains.

Fans will also have a chance to check out the petting barn, watch TV chef Brian Turner cook live and discover the wide range of goods on sale from 600 exhibitors.

BBC Countryfile Live runs from Thursday August 4 until Sunday August 7.
