VIEWERS will get a sneak peek into the world of spreadable cheese tubes as a North-East cheese factory hits TV screens.

Gateshead’s Primula Cheese will star in BBC’s Inside the Factory, alongside MasterChef judge Gregg Wallace, and TV presenter Cherry Healey.

The pair were given exclusive access to the cheese factory at Team Valley Trading Estate last summer, where 3,000 tonnes of spreadable cheese is produced every year.

In scenes aired on BBC Two tonight, viewers will see what happened when Gregg followed the production of Primula Cheese ‘n’ Jalapeños.

Meanwhile, Cherry Healey finds out how bacteria are responsible for the huge variety in smell, taste and appearance of different types of cheese, as well as learning the scientific rules for making perfect cheese on toast.

Paul Lewney, managing director at Primula, said: “It was an absolute pleasure hosting Gregg, Cherry and the crew at Primula and I’m sure they had as much fun following our Primula Cheese ‘n’ Jalapeños production as we did."

Inside the Factory with Primula Cheese airs tonight on BBC Two at 8pm and will be available afterwards on the BBC iPlayer.
