Fans feared that the outbreak of war - the last series was set in 1938 - could leave the ceremony up in the air.

Photos taken in Arncliffe today show extras milling around and a 1930s bus on the set.

Arncliffe has been used by the Channel Five production before - during filming for the second series in 2021, local smallholder Rebecca Ward-Dooley had to answer an SOS from the crew when a delivery of chickens failed to turn up to appear on camera. Her six rescue hens stood in instead.

Other locations likely to be featured again include Grassington - now established as the fictional town of Darrowby - Kettlewell, Broughton Hall and The Green Dragon Inn at Hardraw.

Samuel West, who plays vet Siegfried Farnon, Tweeted last week about his return to Yorkshire and the beginning of the filming block.

The actor has spoken extensively about his love for Yorkshire and was enthusiastic about his birdwatching trips to RSPB Bempton Cliffs, near Bridlington.
