Cold Enough to Freeze Cows
By Lorraine Jenkin
Iestyn Bevan is happiest up to his armpits in sheep dip - putting on his brother's cast off City finery just makes him uncomfortable... Even when it's handed to him by the delectable Sima, life coach to the loaded. Menna Edwards is an expert ram wrestler, but her bathroom owes more to Homes & Gardens than the Farmer's Mart...Together they should be a match made in Heaven, but near as it is to God, the Welsh hill farm isn't the most romantic of wooing grounds. Unless you're Johnny 'Brechdan', in which case there's no fighting off the local lovelies, particularly when you can lay hedges faster than any girl...
This year holds surprises for all three, culminating in a tumultuous night at the Sheep Breeder's Annual Dinner and Dance...where the rumours and rows give the Big Brother house a run for its money!
