Ahead of talking to Ray D'Arcy today, has Aoibhín Garrihy sneaked in a little milking practice ahead of her farming debut tonight on Big Week on the Farm?

Speaking on Ray's show last week, the Dancing with the Stars finalist revealed she had a farming background that she's determined to do proud.

"I was on my Grandad's farm last week when we were filming the VT for the final of Dancing with the Stars and Vitali was lifting the little lambs", she laughed.

"My grandad is a farmer, and my Uncle has now taken over. So I'm hoping to get a crash course on Sunday for this challenge, this Pull the Udder one challenge so that I don't let the side down!"

And speaking to Ray today, was the practice worth it? Judging from Aoibhín meeting with Carmel the cow...we're not too sure!

So how confident is Aoibhín with her farming?
"I certainly remember summers spent on the farm with Grandad", she said. "But it's been a while, though, I kind of need to brush up on my knowledge of all things farming!"

What else is in store for Aoibhín Garrihy, our other special guests and the viewers at home?

Host Ella McSweeney joined Aoibhín and Ray to give us a sneak peek.

"Last year we were in Westmeath, and this year we are up to Cavan which I'm really glad about."

"Cavan in the past 5 years has become a centre for really lovely beautiful food, amazing farming, they've really pushed it," Ella said. "So we have Cork, Kilkenny, Tipperary. Everyone knows those counties for food."

"It's a real celebration of spring, of wildlife, of farming, and of the season we're entering into. But I think also with this year the Cavan family are so different from last year as well. It's a completely different kind of farm."
