This year’s Autumnwatch recently came to a close and, speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, Chris delved into the most heartbreaking aspects of the BBC staple.

However, the series often has to raise awareness of devastating events affecting animals and the natural world, which can be upsetting.

Speaking about the audience’s response to the show, the 61-year-old explained, “We’re getting a good response from the audience.

“They’re always really excited to see new things, they’re always really excited when they’ve provided a wildlife resource, [like] bird food or nesting boxes for birds or mammals and so on.

“And in fact, their enthusiasm, the enthusiasm of the audience is tremendous fuel for us in the program.

“You know, that means we connect and fulfill our mission.

“And our mission is to engage people with British wildlife and make sure they understand that it is interesting, fascinating, beautiful and worthy of attention.

“And they take that into account, you know, and sometimes we do the most impactful things.”

“In a cohort of people, among whom are true gems of integrity and credibility,” Chris wrote of his 578,700 followers.

“But others who’ve sold their souls to greed, what’s the use of your colleagues selling your shirt to the ultimate in animal-abusing trash TV?”

Wildlife groups have hit on I’m A Celeb in the past, with BBC TV personality Chris often leading the criticism.

He has sent several letters to the ITV reality show, accusing them of “stereotyping” animals which he says are used for “entertainment”.

He told Metro: “The time I spend doing TV shows, I try to create an affinity for life.

“It’s not just about the cute and the cuddly, it’s about everything because everything is necessary. So these are snakes, spiders, cockroaches.

“What I object to in the program is the continued stereotyping of these animals as dirty, disgusting, poisonous, dangerous, etc. And that’s counterproductive to everything I do.”

Autumnwatch is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
