TV’s Red Shepherdess, Hannah Jackson, will 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 also take to the fashion stage on the Kuoni Catwalk as part of a celebrity special on Tuesday (at 2:30pm) as well as being guest speaker at the ‘Future Farmer’s breakfast meeting’ on the Wednesday morning of the show (7:45am-9am).

Hannah 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, added: “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 as London – about her life as a young shepherdess and about considering agriculture as a career. We also very much look forward to hearing her guest talk in both our Future Farmers breakfast meeting and for the Young Farmers.”

Known as the Red Shepherdess thanks to her flame-red hair – Hannah moved to the Cumbrian hills five years ago after swapping city life for the peace and quiet of the rural countryside.

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 and is an active ambassador for the farming industry and was on the national judging panel for the NFU Farmvention Programme, aimed at supporting schools to engage with how food is produced.

Hannah is also an ambassador for the NSA and a regular speaker at conferences and events.

In 2019, Hannah completed the selection process for SAS-Who-Dares Wins. Surviving in Arctic conditions in the Chilean Andes, she was the first intake which included female recruits and was one of the only two females to complete the course.
