Cleaning guru Mrs Hinch has emerged as the latest celebrity fan of the TV series The Highland Vet.

The documentary featuring the vets of DS McGregor and Partners in Caithness and Sutherland has become a firm favourite with famous faces including TV presenter Lorraine Kelly.

Mrs Hinch, who is renowned for her cleaning tips on social media and TV, posted about the show on her Instagram account with a photo of one of the vets and a reference to her dog Henry.

She wrote: “Henry loves anything on the TV that animals are in so yes I do put it on for him to watch, he cracks me up.”

The work of the local vets was showcased in two series last year on 5Select, smashing viewing figures for the digital TV channel.

Four weeks ago the first series began its premiere run on terrestrial network Channel 5, pulling in more than a million viewers, and it is set to go out next month in New Zealand.

Daisybeck Studios, the production company behind the show, has announced that the channel has commissioned a third series.

Series producer Mark McMullen of Daisybeck Studios said: “We are absolutely delighted to be returning to Thurso to film a brand new series of The Highland Vet.

“The team at DS McGregor and Partners are working so hard to help animals across Caithness and Sutherland in unprecedented times.

"Though it is challenging from a television production perspective, Daisybeck Studios has helped design and set the ‘gold standard’ protocols for filming safely during lockdown and using our experience to document the team’s dedicated work is a real honour.

"We have established strict safety measures that have been adopted by the UK television industry so that we are still able to film, capture and celebrate the people at the practice, their clients and animals and this most beautiful part of the world."

  • The Highland Vet is on Tuesdays at 7pm on Channel 5.
