GRETNA GREEN is set to host a special episode of the BBC’s Songs of Praise show, focusing on love.

Songs of Praise is centred around faith and spirituality that presents Christian hymns sung in churches and a variety of other inspiring locations of varying denominations from around the UK.

It attracts millions of viewers and Gretna Green’s appearance on the show next month will tie in with the annual ‘St Valentine’ episode.

Gretna Green is cited by many to be the original home of romance due to its rich heritage for eloping couples that dates back many generations.

As such, the episode will both begin and end in the village as it explores the many different aspects of love and how they tie with Christianity.

Susan Houston from Gretna Green Ltd, the family-owned business, will talk with presenter Claire McCollum about the resort’s incredible history and heritage including how it has been passed down over five generations of the family since 1885.

The show also explores some real life love stories as the presenter chats with a minister and a couple who were married at the famous wedding destination.

The episode, ‘God is Love’, will air on BBC One on February 12.
