JACK Fincham is set to appear alongside Chris Packham in a new BBC nature documentary.
The Love Island star – who was an enthusiastic bird watcher while he competed on the ITV2 reality show – is appearing in a new digital show called Nature Dates.
And he’s hoping more people will fall in love with the UK’s wildlife.
Jack said: “I’ve loved nature ever since I was a little kid.
“Nature Dates is a dream come true – walking around amazing areas and seeing all sorts of animals.
“I’m hoping people follow my example and go and ask someone on a nature date.
” A nature date could be with a friend or someone they fancy.
“There’s always something to talk about, and you can find romance in nature, you just have to get out there and look for it.”
On Love Island, Jack taught his fellow islanders the wonders of nature – includng sharing facts about anything from the migration patterns of swallows to the utility of polar bear fur.
Chris Packham added: “Going birding with newbies is always great – especially when they are as keen as Jack.

“He wasn’t exactly a birding virgin though. He has quite a bit of knowledge but was desperate to see his first kingfisher.
“Luckily I delivered and he was delighted!
“Actually, that’s an understatement – he was delirious! A man who knows that the world’s best birds are fully feathered!”
The show is available on BBC iPlayer.
