Countryfile presenter Tom Heap has been a regular on the nature series for years now. Let’s get to know his background a little more…
Amongst the cast for the BBC daytime series, which explores the UK’s environmental issues, Tom does a fair bit of exploring rural ground.
Although he has presented for Countryfile for almost 10 years, fans are still wondering what he does in his spare time, and who he is married to.
We had a look at Tom’s Instagram, his love life and the hobbies he enjoys embarking on when he isn’t delving into nature.
Who is Tom Heap?
Tom has been a regularly-appearing Countryfile presenter since 2012.
The 55-year-old is also a BBC Panorama respondent, whose first film looked into why we thirst for bottled water, when so many lack clean water.
Viewers might recognise Tom from his appearances on Newsnight and Costing the Earth on BBC Radio 4!
Tom began his career as a post-boy for Sky Channel before running around carrying a mixer, attached to a camera as a sound man for Sky News.
