Big Week at The Zoo is a series, stripped over one week, filmed as-live from a studio base on location at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Presented by Helen Skelton and Nick Baker (with Steve Leonard replacing Nick on Friday’s episode), each episode features short VTs filmed at zoos and wildlife parks around the UK and studio chat about the animals shown.

While the majority of the VTs are authored by the dedicated keepers and rangers that work tirelessly - and cheerfully - with the animals under their care, some are fronted by some more well-known faces. Former JLS singer and Springtime on the Farm presenter JB Gill, Hollyoaks and Wild at Heart actress Lucy-Jo Hudson, and The One Show’s Miranda Krestovnikoff are among the roving reporters all getting the chance to get up close and personal to animals they are really passionate about.

Episode 2

On Tuesday, Yorkshire Vet Peter Wright travels to Jersey Zoo to meet the endangered ploughshare tortoises and learns the horrors of how they are illegally smuggled from their native countries. Miranda Krestovnikoff goes to The Deep to help take care of the penguins. We also see the conclusion to the bear rehoming story and see if all four bears made it to their new home in Yorkshire.
