He told to in October: “I’m in the hands of the BBC commissioners, so while my face fits then hopefully they’ll keep me.

“As long as they renew my contract on an annual basis, then I’ll stay, unless I’m tempted by another channel with something exciting to do, then my heart is with the BBC.

“Although I am a freelance presenter, I can work for other channels.

“I’m sure my face won’t fit forever, when it doesn’t I’ll go back to being a normal farmer.”

Adam’s salary for his work on Countryfile is not known as the programme is produced under The BBC’s commercial arm BBC Studios.

However, the Countryfile star is estimated to have a net worth of $2 Million (£1.47 million).

Away from the screen Adam also owns the Cotswold Farm Park which he inherited from his father Joe Henson.

Joe established the park in 1962 with a focus of breeding rare breed animals.

Adam is also an author and has previously written books including A Farmer and His Dog, Like Farmer, Like Son and Countryfile: Adam’s Farm: My Life On the Land.
