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.”

He really is missed and we have to say the show simply isn’t the same without him.
