Telly Today highlights for September 1st.
Lambing Life: Our Lives
Working around the clock with her father David is nothing new, but this year she must juggle the busiest weeks of the farming calendar with the reopening of her alternative therapy business as Covid restrictions lift. Delivering lambs one minute and giving relaxing massages to humans the next is going to be a challenge, but caring is what Chloe does best.
With 150 sheep added to the 600-strong flock this year, Chloe and David must put their own needs aside to welcome and care for more than 1,000 new arrivals, day and night.
At just 24 years old, Chloe is determined to keep the family tradition alive for future generations to come. With tight profit margins, she hopes running a beauty business will help to keep the farm afloat, ensuring the survival of her dream – to take over the business she knows and loves.

In this episode, two sets of neighbours make over each other’s rooms in Leeds.
Former teacher Pauline – with the help of her daughter Lilly – wants her purple floor-to-ceiling front room to be even more vibrant! Next door, self-proclaimed cat lady Amanda – with the help of her daughter Rachel – is hoping that her uninspiring grey living room can be transformed into a scandi-style haven for her and the cats.
As always Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is on hand to give one home a spruce-up while Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead of 2LG Studio give the other home a clean sweep. The proceedings are overseen by host Anna Richardson along with carpenter and joiner Tibby Singh.
