TV presenter Sarah Beeny is set to bring viewers on a new adventure in Somerset with the second series of New Life In The Country.
The Channel 4 property series saw property expert Sarah, 49, and her family swap the busy London life for a brand new start in the Somerset countryside.
First airing in 2020, Sarah, her husband Graham, and their four children set about to refurbish a semi-derelict former dairy farm and transform it into the modern home of their dreams.
Of course, building a new home from a 220-acre site isn’t always straightforward, and the eight-episode series saw the family try glamping, look after four alpacas, learn how to keep bees, and deal with the stress of planning permission and unhappy locals.
In the final episode of the series, Sarah and Graham were just finishing the first stage of building their new home, so it was a given that New Life In The Country would return for a second series.
With the second series airing tonight and audiences getting a glimpse into Sarah’s life, viewers want to know more.
So who is Sarah Beeny, who is her husband and how long have they been together?

Who is Sarah Beeny’s husband?
Sarah Beeny is married to Graham Swift, and the pair are business partners as well as husband and wife.
While Graham, 48, is an artist, he has put his primary work aside in order to help renovate the farm for New Life In The Country and appear in the Channel 4 series.
In fact, Sarah revealed in 2019 that the idea of moving from London to the countryside was Graham’s idea; she told Hello magazine: ‘Graham’s always wanted to move out of London and we’ve always harboured dreams of giving the boys that Swallows and Amazons childhood idyll.
How long have Sarah Beeny and her husband been together?
Sarah and her husband Graham Swift have been together since Sarah was 18 years old.
They were set up on a blind date and fell wildly in love – and Sarah’s brother, Diccon, is in fact married to Graham’s sister, Caroline.
Sarah recently opened up to The Sun about how they met saying Diccon told her: ‘I’ve got a new girlfriend and you’d really like her brother.’
When Diccon and Caroline got married, Sarah recalled thinking it was ‘really weird’ that she and her boyfriend were ‘kind of brother and sister’.
Things moved fast between Sarah and Graham, and at the ages of 18 and 19 respectively, bought a flat and moved in together.
Sarah Beeny’s A New Life In The Country airs at 8.00pm on Channel 4.
