Meet Rob and Josh aka Asheep at the Wheel from The Fast and the Farmer-ish


BBC Three

Rob McGregor (25) and Josh Painter (19) from Scotland

These fiercely competitive lads say losing isn’t an option, as they would never live it down back home!

Sheep farmer Josh works on his family's farm in The Shetland Islands and says his experience of farming is a million miles away from ‘posh English crop farmers down South’ - who he thinks have it easy. He would love to get the win for the Scots.

Rob is from a small village on the Dumfries and Galloway border, and helps run his father’s sheep farm. Rob is coming to the end of his first year studying agriculture at Oakridge Agricultural college where he met fellow ‘loudmouth’ sheep farmer Josh.


The Fast and the Farmer-ish is an Alleycats production for BBC Northern Ireland and BBC Three made with funding from Northern Ireland Screen. It will air on BBC Three at 9pm on Sunday 1 October and BBC One Northern Ireland at 7.30pm on Friday 6 October. The full series will be available on BBC iPlayer from Sunday 1 October.

The Fast And The Farmer-ish is part of the BBC’s Across the UK plan, moving content away from London to allow the BBC to better reflect, represent and serve all audiences.
