TV’s Red Shepherdess Hannah Jackson is set to make her debut at the Great Yorkshire Show this year.

The 26-year-old who starred in Channel 4’s reality show SAS: Who Dares Wins, will open the Discovery Zone’s new area Gen Z, which will educate teenagers about agricultural careers.

Hannah will take to the Kuoni Catwalk as part of the Celebrity Special on Tuesday at 2.30pm, as well as being guest speaker at the Future Farmer’s Breakfast Meeting on the Wednesday, from 7.45am to 9am..

She said: “I’m thrilled to be coming to the Great Yorkshire Show for three days doing a variety of talks, meeting visitors, pupils and farmers and even taking part in a fashion show. I’m looking forward to an exciting three days.”

Show director Charles Mills said: “We are thrilled to have Hannah at the show. She will be the perfect ambassador for speaking to the thousands of school pupils we have coming to the show - including a school from as far afield as London - about her life as a young shepherdess and about considering agriculture as a career.”

Known as the Red Shepherdess thanks to her flame-red hair, Hannah moved to the Cumbrian hills five years. After graduating with a BSc in Animal Behaviour at 20, she took a life changing decision to head from Wirral, up to Cumbria to pursue her dreams to have a career working with animals.

In 2018 she was a finalist for the national Young Farmer of the Year. She is an active ambassador for the farming industry and was on the national judging panel for the NFU Farmvention Programme.

She is also an ambassador for the National Sheep Association.

The 161st Great Yorkshire Show will take place from Tuesday, July 9, to Thursday, July 11.
