“And that's why I wrote the Escape to the Country handbook to bring many of the lessons that I've learned. Not just through my professional life on Escape to the Country but also my personal life. It is a part and parcel of who I am, I absolutely live and breathe it. It’s a show I'm very, very proud of.”

The presenter previously had career in the military. After receiving a degree in Field Archaeology, he trained to be an officer at Sandhurst aged 23, the same place where Prince Harry did his own training. He eventually decided not to pursue a career in the army and left to pursue a career in television. However, after ten years he was commissioned into the British Army with the Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers.

He's not going anywhere any time soon!

He opened up about returning to his role in 2017, telling the Express: "Last year, I went back again to be commissioned in the Royal Engineers and that was the bravest thing I’ve ever done. It was pretty daunting. I did come out the other end okay but most of my comrades were half my age."
