IT WAS not a happy week for the Wrexham farmer who has been appearing on a BBC Two dating show.

Episode 4 of the second series of Love In The Countryside aired on Tuesday, and featured Grace Edwards, a 23-year-old sheep and dairy farmer who lives in the Bronington area on the Wrexham/Shropshire border.

The show follows her and other rural occupants across the UK as they attempt to whittle down potential suitors.

This week, she only appeared for a brief period to fill us in on what has been going on between her and hobby-farmer Mike, as a budding romance appeared to be blossoming between the two.

However, it appears it was not meant to be as Miss Edwards revealed that Mike seemingly called it off due to constraints in his work and social life.

Grace sat down with presenter Sara Cox and revealed her disappointment in Mike’s decision, revealing that he sent her a text message to put an end to their time together.

She said: “It’s difficult to put really. I had, sort of, really good hopes for it.

“So, he sent me a text saying, basically, he thought his social life and work life wouldn’t allow him to see me.

“It’s a bit annoying because I really wanted something between us, so I’m gutted that he didn’t want to take the time to get to know me, even just a little bit more. I don’t know.

“I hope he looks back and thinks that his behaviour hasn’t been the best. It’s a shame but I do wish him all the luck in the world to find someone because I think he’s going to need it.

“But no, it is what it is.”

The presenter went on to ask Grace if she was still confident that she would find someone out there for her, and she remained very positive that she will eventually find the right person, while admitting that the show has helped her to further understand what it is she’s looking for.

She said: “I’m excited abut my life, I’ve learnt so much about myself.

“I thought I needed someone who was townie, a bit of a house-husband instead of a housewife, but actually, I think I do need someone with a little bit of rural in them.

“I so want to share my life with someone, and you’re going to have wrong relationships before you meet the right one.

“So, you know what, bring it on boys. Pucker up.”
