Later in the show, Sam West who plays Siegfried Farnonand Anna Madeley who plays Mrs Hall, enter the world of The Yorkshire Vet.

They discover the real people behind their characters, with visits to some of the now well-known haunts, including the real Drovers Arms.

Greg Barnett, commissioning editor for factual entertainment said: “Both these series command huge audiences and we couldn’t resist putting the actors and the actual Herriot trainee and team together to create some heart-warming and entertaining TV.

“In sort of a ‘job swap’ way, viewers will get to see behind the scenes at this year’s Christmas special whilst some of the actors experience Skeldale Practice first-hand and get taken to a couple of James Herriot’s favourite places. It’s a real Christmas treat.”

Peter Wright, star of The Yorkshire Vet, added: “It’s going to be great introducing Sam West to people who knew Donald Sinclair, the real person who inspired his character Siegfried Farnon”.

All Creatures Great and Small series 1-4 is available to watch on Channel 5.
