The show has been running since 2002, so it's clearly popular among its viewers, and the presenters, such as Nicki Chapman and Jonnie Irwin, have also become household names thank to their stints on the show. One star of the BBC programme is Ginny Buckley.

Does Ginny Buckley have children?

Yes! The BBC star is a proud mum-of-one to son Zak, aged 12. Ginny clearly loves taking her son on adventures across the globe as the pair spent this year's Easter holidays enjoying the sun in Australia. 

More recently, the pair journeyed down to Cornwall to go cliff jumping in Port Gaverne. 

The presenter marked the special moment by sharing a picture of the pair to Instagram. She wrote the caption: "Thank you to the wonderful @cornishadventure for achieving the impossible and giving me the confidence to climb up a cliff and jump off it into the brilliant blue ocean!
