The Yorkshire Vet first hit our screens in 2015 but has been such a ratings success that it is now in it’s 11th series.

Donaldson's director Martin Paterson said: “We are excited to be involved in The Yorkshire Vet series and look forward to viewers meeting our talented team of vets and our clients.

"As a modern, independent, Yorkshire based Vet Practice, that was founded several decades before James Herriot was born, we feel certain that viewers will enjoy seeing how modern veterinary care continues to evolve.

"With some great personalities treating interesting and challenging cases against the backdrop of the stunning Yorkshire countryside, we are delighted to be part of The Yorkshire Vet."

Mr Smith said: "I’ve been a vet for about six years now and did not think for one minute that I would be part of The Yorkshire Vet.

"I’ve been lucky to meet so many great people throughout these years. I am so proud of everyone and excited to share our stories with you.'

Vet David Melleney added: "As vets in Yorkshire, we are privileged to look after so many amazing animals and I am delighted that we have an opportunity to share some of their incredible stories.”

The Yorkshire Vet is on Channel 5 at 8pm on Tuesdays.
