Just Who Is Gillian Burke Springwatch New Girl Presenter??

Just Who Is Gillian Burke Spinwatch New Girl Presenter??

If you’re a regular to watching Springwatch you will know that normally presenting the show is Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan, Martin Hughes-Games but this series what started on Monday you would have seen a new presenter called Gillian Burke.

If you’re wondering who Gillian is well she’s a Biologist and filmmaker who made an appearance on the show last year and now has been made a permanent member of the team.

She was born outside Nairobi, Kenya and lived a life as “very happily feral” as she would kick her shoes off and go and play outside with none on.

It was in September of 2016 when it was reported that Martin Hughes-Games has been axed from the show because he is white and middle-class and the BBC wanted more diversity among its presenters.

Gillian admitted that she was ‘horrified’ when it was reported that she was breaking up the Springwatch family.

As she said:

“A friend texted me one Monday morning saying I was in the papers. Can you imagine the horror for me of apparently busting into the party and being blamed for breaking it up?

“I can totally understand why people would want to know where I’ve come from; the perception is that I’ve just shown up. But I’ve been doing this a long time.”

Lets hope that she fits in well with the team so far we have to say we are liking her.

Springwatch Returns To BBC Two - Nicole Williams Gossip Reviews

So tonight one of my favorite shows returned to BBC Two and i have to say I wasn’t disappointed.

The nature show was back with presenters Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan, Martin Hughes-Games and new presenter Gillian Burke along with the new presenter they have a completely new home as they have moved from Minsmere in Suffolk to National Trust’ Sherborne Park Estate in the heart of the Cotswolds.

The show started with a introduction of their new home along with the presenters showing all the new cameras what they have up at the new location.

They have a new studio what is a large t pee and we have to say it looks very very cosy.

Now time to talk about what wildlife they have and already they have barn owls, blue tits and badges and if you’re a regular to Springwatch you will know just how hard they find it to see the badgers.

We have to say we are so looking forward to the next three weeks it’s so exciting.
