Emmerdale star and Strictly Come Dancing winner Kelvin Fletcher's new BBC show has been branded a 'rip off' of Jeremy Clarkson's hit farming programme. 

Kelvin's Big Farming Adventure debuted on Monday, with fans seeing the actor, 38, swap Emmerdale Farm for his own agricultural haven - as ariel images of his 120 acre Peak District farm show the sprawling land, complete with various barns, a farmhouse, surrounding fields with sheep and an under-construction building. 

While his property boasts all the trappings of a classic farm, the format of the show has been branded a 'poor man's take' on 2021's Amazon documentary Clarkson's Farm, which follows the 61-year-old Top Gear's star attempt to manage his own farm and farm shop with his girlfriend Lisa Hogan.  

Swarming Twitter with comments about Kelvin's six-part show, many highlighted the similarities, while The Telegraph dished out a two star review with references to Clarkson's Farm, yet the i was more complimentary with four stars, to match up with the many viewers who claimed they 'loved' the show.

Having purchased a 120-acre farm in the Peak District, Kelvin is seen navigating life as a farmer with the assistance of his next-door neighbour, Gilly, his wife Liz, who is now expecting twins, and their two children. 

His stunning 18th century property is seen to boast a slew of stunning features, with images depicting all the essentials for his delve into his new life as a farmer away from the Dales and the Strictly dancefloor. 

The show cannot escape the likenesses to the depiction of Jeremy's attempts to run the 1,000 acre Diddly Squat Farm in Oxfordshire, which he purchased just before the coronavirus pandemic hit. Likenesses have also been drawn between Our Yorkshire Farm and Sarah Beeny's New Life in the Country. 

Last year, Kelvin referenced the similarities in an interview with the Daily Mail saying: 'Well, if the BBC want to pay me what Amazon are paying Clarkson, that would be fine with me. We were talking to the BBC about other things entirely and this came up. There’s a huge appetite for this sort of show and they’re all very different'.
