Keep your eyes peeled for TV favourites at the Cornhill today - the team behind BBC's The One Show have reserved a filming slot this afternoon.

Presenters from the programme are due to be outside the town hall between 12pm and 6pm, tasting the first tomatoes picked at Suffolk’s huge ‘tomato kingdom’ which can grow more than 150 million plants each year.

They will be quizzing shoppers if they want to see more British produce than imported food ahead of Brexit.

Screen Suffolk confirmed The One Show bosses were filming for an upcoming show, and that a presenter is due to be at the Cornhill.

But mystery surrounds which one – who would you like to see there?

Their visit comes as the first tomatoes grown inside Sterling Suffolk’s high-tech greenhouse, which is the size of 11 football pitches, were declared “ripe for picking”.

Ten weeks after the first seed was sown, experts gave a glimpse inside the massive Dutch-style glasshouse, which has been branded a ‘tomato kingdom’.
