Chris explained to The Sun newspaper: "Obviously, our co-host Terry Nutkins died a couple of years ago so it would be down to Michaela and I. But there's a huge adult population that remember the show with enormous fondness.

"Virtually every time I go out someone talks about it. They say: 'We watched you on 'The Really Wild Show' and now we watch you and Michaela on 'Springwatch' with our kids', and it's sort of fulfilling a circle for them."

"We hopefully inspired them when they were kids and now we're helping to inspire their own kids. So, yeah, we have been thinking about bringing 'The Really Wild Show' back, which could be quite good fun." 

The reboot will also see Nick Baker and Steve Backshall, who fronted the later series of the original, return as presenters alongside Chris and Michaela.

Not much else is known about the comeback but it's expected to air on the Beeb!
