They’ve become known for their innuendo laden jokes on the likes of Springwatch and Autumnwatch on BBC Two.

And while presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan find it humorous to inject a little smut into their seasonal nature shows, it transpires the BBC have had a stern word with them about taking it too far. 

Chris, 56, told The Sun: ‘Michaela and I utilise whatever means we can to enliven the show. We often get told off afterwards, we have had a warning for pushing it. But we are trying to appeal to a broad audience.’

Retaining that it’s all a bit of fun, he went on: ‘A lot of the Springwatch’s viewers are not hardcore natural history watchers. If we didn’t entertain them with innuendos, I don’t think the programmes would work.’

Chris and longtime collaborator Michaela, 51, have been known to talk about ‘geat tits’ and ‘deepest shags’ in their time hosting the series – which investigates the goings on of various animals and wildlife around the UK at the turn of each season.

In January of 2016, during a segment on Winterwatch about game bird the black grouse, he made a shocking pre-watershed pun involving the animal’s other moniker, the blackcock.

‘I get Michaela out of bed to show her blackcock in the flesh,’ came the brazen innuendo.

He has also been known for phrases such as ‘we all like to see tits in HD’ and ‘great tits, great tits, wherefore art thou great tits?’ – referring to the species of bird.

Michaela has been at it too, with one episode last year featuring her saying she likes to ‘scratch her badger’, referring to the one she had printed on the top she was wearing.

Their co-star Lolo Williams got in on the puns when she once asked conservationist Liz Morgan, ‘is that the deepest shag you’ve ever had?’

Springwatch has not only shocked viewers with is pre-watershed smut, but has also featured graphic scenes of violence from animals, likened last year to an episode of Game Of Thrones.

In an episode about nests of newborn birds, viewers were left traumatised by several scenes of the animals being killed in a variety of gory ways by fellow woodland creatures.

One scene featured a stoat who tried to snatch a great tit from a bird box unsuccessfully; but shortly after, while the inquisitive chicks were seen poking their heads out of the box, a jay suddenly flew into shot, grabbed one by its tiny beak and violently pulled it through the hole, immediately killing it.

Later, the same stoat that tried to attack the great tits earlier on was seen returning to the next, disappearing inside and massacring the rest of the nest of chicks.
