While filming Last Tango, what was the hardest farming skill they made you learn?

As soon as we’re all back in Yorkshire we all fall back into it.

I like them.
Ruth Evershed is a University Challenge champion, if she went head-to-head with Caroline, who do you think would win?
Ruth Evershed. It would be a wipe out.
