Tom, a long standing WFN supporter, took part in the Pointless Celebrities show last weekend on BBC One, teaming up with Jules Hudson. This special ‘outdoors’ themed episode included various wildlife TV presenters including Chris Packham and Martin Hughes-Games, Miranda Krestovnikoff and Paul Heiney, and Naomi Wilkinson and Bill Oddie.
