Just Why Is Martin Hughes-Games Not On Springwatch This Year?

With the new series of Springwatch starting this week on BBC 2 fans of the how have noticed that someone is missing.

With Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Gillian Burke back hosting the show Martin Hughes-Games is missing but why is he not on the show.

It was last year when Martin announced that he will no longer be apart of the show as he stepped down as host and Steve Backshall will be taking over.

Martin took to his Twitter account and said:

“After 12 great years I have decided to leave the watches. “It’s good to go when the show is looking strong. MASSIVE thank you for yr support. [sic]”

Co-presenter Chris has been speaking about working with Martin for so many years and said:

“I am staying put. I’m going to miss Martin a lot.

“He’s an extraordinary man. He’s witty, he’s funny, he’s clever.”

“He knows a lot about wildlife. He’s extremely passionate and I will miss him.”

Nick Knowles Defends £349,000 Salary From The BBC!

He’s the presenter of DIY SOS and Who Dares Wins but it seems Nick Knowles is the only one who wins.

Nick is apparently on a whopping £349,00 salary paid for by the BBC eating the same amount of money as top footballers do for presenting the two BBC shows.

Now nick has defended his massive pay packet as he said that  senior broadcasters’ earnings are as justifiable as top Premier League strikers.

He continued to say to The Sun:

“On a personal level of course it’s quite difficult. But there are proper reasons, and I think most people in the industry understand it.

“It is essentially a Premier League team paying a striker to score them 20 goals and keep them in the Premiership so that they can get another £100million — and that’s exactly what we do.

“As a TV presenter if a production company makes a series of programmes and it gets two and a half million viewers it won’t get another commission.

He went on to say:

“If you hire a presenter that actually carries a number of viewers with them, it’ll get five and a half million viewers, it’ll get another series and they’ll get another half a million pounds worth of business – so it’s a good bit of business.

“Anybody who earns a lot takes some explaining to people that don’t, and we live in an imperfect world where somebody who sings songs for a living makes more than a heart surgeon.”

Nick has gone from strength to straight on the box after growing up on a council estate in Southall, west London.
