Talking of presenting on the show, Megan at the time posted to social media.

She wrote: “Just wanted to post and say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has commented and sent me messages over the last couple days.

“I am so grateful to all of you, and I will do my best to get back to you all individually as soon as possible.

“This really is an exceptional year for @bbcspringwatch.

“It’s technically challenging with everyone working from home.

“But the first two shows have been incredible which is testament to such a brilliant and dedicated team! And there is so much more coming up too…”

Megan has since spoken of how at first, she felt nervous before starting her new role.

She explained to HELLO!: “I was slightly nervous, but I met Chris when I was two years old, so have always grown up around film crews.”
