Family drama Wild at Heart will be back for a sixth series.
Stephen Tompkinson, Dawn Steele and the cast will be returning to South Africa to film 10 more episodes of the popular Sunday night drama this summer.
The fifth series – following the fortunes of the Trevanion family who live and work on a game reserve – was watched by an average audience of seven million earlier this year.
In the first episode of the new series, we catch up with newlyweds Danny and Alice Trevanion on honeymoon in the UK, where they meet someone from Danny’s past who has a secret which threatens to destroy the family.
Returning home to the wilds of South Africa, Danny is distraught when the lions of Leopard’s Den start dying of a mystery illness. And Alice questions her role at Leopard’s Den when her confidence as a vet takes a knock.
Deon Stewardson will be back as the popular Du Plessis with Hayley Mills as Caroline.
