The Sheffield athlete will open the three-day annual event next month, which she will be attending with her family.

Jessica, who is currently competing at the Rio Olympics, said: “I have always loved visiting Chatsworth – it is such a beautiful venue with the most amazing grounds.

“It is not far from home and when I get a day off I often visit for a walk and relax. Now I have a little boy, I enjoy visiting the adventure play area with him and we always pop into the farm shop on the way home for a few bits of local produce.

“I am really delighted to be president of Chatsworth Country Fair. I have yet to visit the event, but this year with my husband and son Reggie I hope to take in all of the stalls and meet lots of exhibitors and visitors too.”
