Kelvin Fletcher's wife swipes at ITV as farming series pulled from screens in schedule shake-up | The Sun
KELVIN Fletcher's wife Liz appeared to hit out at ITV after being seemingly left disgruntled at a surprise schedule shake-up.
The change to television listings left farmer Liz 'unhappy' as the family's new reality series Fletcher's on the Farm was pulled from screens.
In the programme, the family's day-to-day life on their farm is captured by the cameras as they settle into what the couple have previously described as their dream lifestyle.
However, the latest addition of their programme was axed by the broadcaster in favour of live coverage of football.
Making reference to the switch, Liz shared the news with her 108,000 followers as she shared a smiley selfie with three of the four children she shares with her ex-Emmerdale star hubby.
Liz wrote alongside the snap: "No Fletchers on the farm today because of the football."

She then appeared to share her annoyance with a cryptic dig at ITV as she shared a 'rolling eyes' emoji to hint at her frustration.
Offering up some more favourable news she confirmed that the programme would return with the fourth episode in the series next Sunday.
Their new ITV series comes hot off the heels of their BBC programme which saw Andy Sugden actor Kelvin delve into farming for real and not just for his former job on the soap.
The family's show got off to a scary start that saw Kelvin, 39, 'shaking' after finding himself in a life or death situation.

The moment came during a particularly tense lambing session for the star and Liz on their farm.
Amid concern for the welfare of a newborn lamb, Kelvin could be seen in a state of worry over the distressing scene.
Fearing the sheep had "given up", it was left up to Kelvin and Liz to support the lamb.
Thankfully, the Strictly Come Dancing champ pulled through and the newborn arrived safely.
Liz said to her hubby: "You saved it."
Unable to respond, Kelvin appeared shook-up as Liz asked him: "Are you shaking?"
Covered in blood, the actor turned racing driver said: "Well, it was just tense."
The couple's four children – Marnie, six, Milo, four, as well as twins Mateusz and Maximus, one – all appear on the series alongside their celeb parents.
