Devon’s aristocratic Fulford family are returning to television a decade after a documentary about them made a star of their foul-mouthed father.

Cameras will follow the lives of the four siblings – Arthur, Matilda, Humphrey and Edmund – at their 3,000-acre Great Fulford estate.

The six-part BBC3 show, called Life Is Toff, is described as the story of four young people “struggling with the same problems, insecurities and rites of passage, but with the weight of 800 years of history bearing down on them.”

Channel editor Sam Bickley said: “I am really excited to announce a brand-new factual entertainment series about the four Fulford children as the eldest son takes up the reins of the family estate in Devon.”

Their father Francis became an overnight star in a 2004 Channel 4 documentary called The F****ing Fulfords which saw him dream up different schemes in a bid to restore the family fortune.
