A former singer - who now runs a farm in Kent - is backing a campaign to get more young people to consider farming as a career.

Stats have revealed the number of under 25s working in agriculture has dropped almost two thirds in the past 10 years while just 3 percent of 18 to 30 year-olds would consider it as a profession.

Ex JLS star JB Gill owns land near Westerham where he produces award winning turkeys and free-range pork.
