Alex Jones and Gethin Jones were back on the iconic green sofas this evening to present Tuesday’s instalment of BBC’s The One Show. Towards the end, they ere joined by naturist Chris Packham who was life from the New Forest to discuss the new series of Springwatch. He was also asked to help out several viewers with their nature questions and when Alex posed on of them to him, she made a remark about the appearance of a butterfly which Chris responded with a telling off.
“Some of our favourite moments over the past few weeks have been Chris Packham bringing nature into our living rooms,” Alex introduced.
“And now, he can bring us even more! Because Chris has all the cameras of the Springwatch team at his disposable at his own house,” Gethin added.
“So let’s go live to him right now, enjoying what’s left of the sunshine in the garden. Chris lovely to see you! Tell us what have you been seeing through those cameras during the last week or so?” Gethin asked.
“Well we’ve been really busy down here, we’ve had the cameras out all the time, we’ve been putting food out in the garden so lots of birds coming in,” Chris revealed.

He then went onto explain what viewers could expect in the latest episode of Springwatch before Gethin asked for his expertise.
“We’ve had quite a few questions Chris from last week, from viewers. They’ve been fascinated by what you’ve been doing,” Gethin remarked.
“Now Peter wanted to know what this butterfly was that he spotted in Somerset,” Alex commented.
“It’s sort of a brown one,” she continued but Chris interjected: “It’s a beautiful little butterfly.
“Somehow or other, the females are able to choose the fittest male amongst them to mate with!
“It’s an extraordinary sight for what is otherwise a ‘little brown, spotty woodland butterfly,'” he mocked Alex.
Gethin then thanked Chris for his time and reminding viewers when they could catch the next instalment of Springwatch.
“Can you just give us a quick idea of what we’ve got to look forward too?” The host asked.
