AUTUMNWATCH is back on the small screen for another series.
Once again Chris Packham is joined by his stepdaughter Megan McCubbin to help present the BBC nature programme.
Who is Chris Packham's stepdaughter Megan McCubbin?
Megan isn't new to the wildlife scene and is actually a zoologist and conservationist, with experience in TV presenting.
According to her professional website, Megan has a degree in zoology and is also a keen wildlife photographer.
Her bio reads: "Megan is a passionate scientist with a particular interest in behaviour, evolution and the illegal wildlife trade. Her interest stems from a childhood growing up in and around the Isle of Wight Zoo, which specialises in the rescue and rehabilitation of ex-circus and pet trade animals."
In 2017, Megan presented Undercover Tourist: Inside the Illegal Bear Bile Market for BBC3 and has since forged her career in TV.
How is Megan McCubbin related to Chris Packham?
Zoologist Megan is the daughter of one of Chris’ previous partners, Jo.
She first met Chris when she was 18 months old and although her mum and Chris separated when she was 12, Megan has continued to enjoy a close relationship with her stepdad, often travelling with him on his wildlife trips around the globe.
The duo also broadcast wildlife videos together on YouTube.
Chris told the BBC: “We’ve had over 5.5 million views over the last month for something that we are making with two mobile phones and some help from our colleague Fabian on a laptop in Norwich. It’s fantastic.”
Is Megan McCubbin returning to Autumnwatch?
Megan made her debut on Springwatch in 2020.
She was such a big hit that she returned for Autumnwatch that same year.
The good news is she is back again for Autumnwatch 2021 when it kicks off TONIGHT (October 26, 2021) at 8pm on BBC Two.
