Wild At Heart

IT’S a strange time of the year in TV land.
While normal souls are looking forward to Christmas telly, we’re already watching the stuff that’ll be screened in January and beyond.
That includes a second series of Wild At Heart, which was a huge hit for ITV1 earlier this year, with audiences of over 10 million.
Which is why I put off the festive shopping yet again today and headed for ITV Network Centre in London to watch two new episodes filmed in the heat of the African plains.

Amanda Holden, who plays wife and mum Sarah, entered into the spirit of it all by wearing a leopard-print dress.
She spoke about filming the new series with baby daughter Lexi – one next month – on location with her in South Africa.
Amanda is also looking forward to an imminent Cutting It reunion. “We’re having our Christmas lunch soon, meeting up with all the girls.”
Stephen Tompkinson – last seen alongside Helen Mirren in the final Prime Suspect – stars as vet Danny.
He is heading for The Lowry next March in a new production of Charley’s Aunt, directed by Mel Smith.
Stephen has also been talking to Robson Green about a possible return for ITV nineties hit Grafters – in which they played brothers Trevor and Joe.
“Robson and I would definitely be keen to reunite again,” he said.
And he doesn’t rule out going back to the role of Ballykissangel’s Father Peter Clifford. “I’d love to find out what’s happened to him.”
Meanwhile Lucy-Jo Hudson, who played Corrie’s Killer Katy, will never forget a spot of unplanned drama after arriving in Africa to reprise her role as Rosie.

    Is there anywhere where I can obtain a CD of the music played during this series of Wild At Heart? Thank you.
    Fay Stuart

  14. Ian Wylie

    Fay – no CD available at the moment, I’m afraid.

  15. marina sollis

    Please please is there any chance in the near future that we will be able to get the music to Wild at Heart as I’m addicted to it.

  16. diane

    Hi – can you tell me if wild at heart is repeated at all it says on my tv guide its on again next sat as i missed last sunday but cant find it on my tv guide.

  17. Ian Wylie

    Marina – I’ve asked ITV if there are any plans to release a CD of the music. Will post back here as soon as I know.

  18. Ian Wylie

    Diane – as far as I can tell, Wild At Heart is not repeated on Saturdays or at any other time of the week. Sorry!

  19. Laura

    Hey just wna say i love wild at heart and would never miss it but sadly i missed it on sunday due 2 being at a concert so is there any chance i can watch it online anywhere?

  20. chloe

    I think it’s all good and I am only 12. That’s my best film. I will love to see u all and that teenager should go out with that man who is with her all the time.

  21. chloe

    Hi ya. Did you get my post. Hope so. I would like some books of this and how old is that boy?

  22. Ian Wylie

    Chloe – presume you mean the young actor Luke Ward Wilkinson, who plays Evan? Not sure of his exact age, but you can read more about him here:

  23. tony west

    the music is wonderful….they must bring out a cd of it. Heres hoping!

  24. Ian Wylie

    Have yet to hear the latest back from ITV on any poss music CD. I will post an answer as soon as I have one.

  25. Ben Robson

    When is the second series being released on to dvd?

  26. Ian Wylie

    Ben – the DVD of series two is currently scheduled for release on April 2nd.


    I agree with the previous comments re music from the series Wild at Heart. Normally we are bombarded with TV merchandise, so come on ITV release a CD from the series. What a money spinner for you that would be and it would make us happy.

  28. martyn baker

    i love the show and i want the dvd set of it

  29. tracey thomson

    hi everyone. i am so happy 4 luke doin wild at heart bless him. luv ya luv traceyxxxxxxxxx

  30. jean frost

    Can you plse tell mw where Wild at Heart is filmed in South Africa

  31. Ian Wylie

    Jean – Wild At Heart is filmed in an area around Glen Afrique. The nearest city is Johannesburg.
    And for those waiting for news of a possible music CD release, I checked with ITV yet again this week and there’s still no sign of it happening. ITV have promised to keep me updated.
    Also check out the new links (at the bottom of the blog entry) to the MEN features about the second series.

  32. antonia thaxter

    I like Rose, she is so funny.

  33. Jeff Smith

    Which artists produce the music for Wild at Heart? The credits at the end are squished up and in small print and I haven’t yet got the name. There may not be an ITV CD but their other music might appeal instead.

  34. Ian Wylie

    Jeff – not sure about the artists (I’ve passed your question on to ITV for an answer) but the series composers are listed as Norwell and Green. That’s Tristin Norwell and Nick Green, who have also written music for other TV series like Waterloo Road, 55 Degrees North and Drop Dead Gorgeous. Check them out via Google.

  35. audreywareham

    please lets have music from series. hope dup recovers from his attack. brill series.

  36. hazel williams

    I would love a copy of the theme song for Wild At Heart. I heard it may not be even released. Please please tell me where i can get a copy……

    hi, could you please tell me Sarah’s and Danny’s surname in the programme – Wild At Heart?

  41. jess

    who sings the wild at heart song at the beginning of the program?

  42. Meg Stanton

    Just love the house in wild at heart. Where can I get photos and a house plan?

  43. Ian Wylie

    A third series of Wild At Heart begins filming next month (June 2007) but Amanda Holden has been quoted as saying she will be leaving the show at some stage during the new series. Still no news on any music CD release.

  44. Cliff

    Any info about music on the show CD and etc

  45. Ian Wylie

    Cliff – ITV still has no info about any CD release of the music. It’s not looking promising, I’m afraid.

  46. Ben Welsh

    Hi do you know when wild at heart will be on again?

  47. Ian Wylie

    Ben – no transmission date yet for the next series, but it’ll probably be back in January or soon after.

  48. Kate Todd

    What is the CD for Wild At Heart and NCIS?

  49. chris

  60. Ian Wylie

    Jane – the exact location is not disclosed but it’s around 10 mins drive from the Jack Nicklaus-designed Pecanwood Golf & Country Club Estate, which is itself an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria on the banks of the Hartbeesport Dam and with views of the Magaliesburg mountains.

  66. Ian Wylie

    Amanda – you can watch the final episode (available for 30 days after tonight) via the ITV website at:
    Becca / Karen – the assumption is that there will be another series but I have yet to hear of any official confirmation. Will check it out again tomorrow.

  67. amy jackson

  68. Ian Wylie

    An update – my understanding is that there will be a fourth series, even though it has yet to be officially announced.

  69. sally fisher

    hi i think it is so sad that you decide to take sarah out of wild at heart .when will the next series start.

  70. Ian Wylie

    Sally – if you read later blogs and MEN TV feature interviews, you’ll see that it was actress Amanda Holden’s own decision to leave the series, forcing the character’s exit. A new series – still to be officially announced – would be screened in 2009.

  71. sarah mcginn

    Hi Elizabeth – as far as I know, series three has not yet been released on DVD.

  84. Karine

    Hi Mary Barrass! Just wondering how you got the audio cd from Wild at Heart, did they send it to you?

  85. Joyce Clark

    I’m from the U.S. and love this program. I bought the first two years from Ebay UK and actually bought a Pal Recorder for this purpose. Can’t wait for the third season to be released on DVD so I can see it too. You are all so lucky. They haven’t played it in the states yet.

  86. Jane

    The first series has just hit NZ and is a big hit. I too would love to get a copy of the music and have requested several times through the link as mentioned above. Can anyone tell me how long it takes?

    I tried the link too but never received anything.

  88. Carol

    So sorry not to get back to you all sooner – we are still finishing off Series Four!
    It looks like you may soon be able to purchase downloads of the music to Wild At Heart from an online distributor. Aplologies for the lack of news, but please be patient – we will let you know more as soon as possible! And thank you for all your lovely emails…we don’t mean to ignore you…
    Norwell & Green

  92. sam

    wild at heart is the best program ever. i think that evan (luke ward wilkinson) is one of the best actors ever, i love his acting. i hope wild at heart carries on going. i also think danny is a good actor. i am so glad for luke doing wild at heart love him he is so brave. i wish i was like him. and for anyone wanting to know lukes (evan’s) age i think he is about 18. i would love more info about him.

  93. nicola clark

    i like all of you but rosse is the best and she is pregnant and is it a girl or boy

  94. David

    agree with all comments re music and demand for a cd issue. in the meantime, having a passion for good African music, can I recommend to you all a guy named Hennie Bekker? He was born in Zambia, has travelled all over Africa and is now resident in Canada where he just puts out music, music, music. He has done an African Trilogy plus a fourth cd of purely African music. not just the drumbeats, but a few of those, some animals sounds, rainfall, etc. This all in support of an orchestral background makes for fabulous African music, far better than the Norwell & Green stuff which I also like. Go on, give it a try. If you go to you tube and hit Hennie Bekker, you should find a sample of his African-style music for your pleasure!. David

  95. Robin

    I tryed the address for the music but got no luck can anybody post a link were it can be downloaded? Is there a contact address for norwell and green?

  96. charles quaye

    whats the name of the last music and by which artist i mean when the credits is rolling up , the back background music is so nice and funky.

  97. fay b

    does anyone know where i can find more info about luke ward – wilkinson please ?

  98. Lisbet Stårup

    We finaly enjoy “Wild at heart” here in Denmark. But.. can anyone tell me, how to get hold of the music used in it ? every time an episode is ending, there is some wonderfull traditional african music and singing. I would like to know where to buy that. Can anyone tell me ?

  99. Daniel Roden

    i absolutely love it but do you guys and gals know when it gets repeated if you miss an episode ive looked on itv 2 but cant seem to find it
    many thanks dan

  100. Rory Macrae

  103. Matthew Scrupps

  104. Joyce from the USA

    Dear Ian
    Just forgot to add to my note:
    I received an email this week ( after many others ) from Norwell & Green that they hope to have the music available in a couple of months, apparently they kept having problems getting it published, I hope this time it works, Thanks again

  105. Edward Kerby
