She has already visited the beautiful village of Holmfirth, the filming location for the sitcom Last of the Summer Wine, in the first episode.

The next episode, which will air on Channel 5, will see Jane explore Oakworth Station, where The Railway Children was filmed before taking in the sights of the historic village Haworth, where the Bronte sisters grew up. During her trip to Oakworth, she meets one of The Railway Children cast’s heartthrobs.

Jane tells us what the series is about in an exclusive interview with The Yorkshire Post’s Sue Wilkinson: “It’s a love letter to the viewers as to why I keep mentioning Yorkshire and Wakefield all the time!

“No matter what show I’m on, I always get a mention of Wakefield in somewhere. I just want to show everyone my beautiful city and my beautiful county.”

The episode will air on Sunday, February 27 at 9pm.
