David Attenborough, 96, voted Britain's favourite TV presenter of all time



Sir David Attenborough has been voted Britain's favourite TV presenter of all time.

The veteran broadcaster, biologist and natural historian has been gracing our screen with his dulcet tones since the 1950s.

So, it’s hardly a surprise that the beloved documentary narrator, 96, has won over our hearts and come out on top, according to a recent poll.

The telly icon won 28% of the vote with 30 household names making up the list in all.

David is the voice behind several high-profile BBC wildlife documentaries including The Blue Planet and Planet Earth.

His stunning career has spanned eight decades and he is the only person to win BAFTA awards for programmes in black and white, colour, high-definition, 3D, and 4K.

Attenborough’s latest gong comes after the Mirror revealed how he risked bird flu on the Welsh island of Skomer for a first glimpse of Manx shearwater chick taking flight on its 6,000-mile migration to South America, during filming for his new Wild Isles series.

To see the bird leave Skomer, the 96-year-old broadcasting legend was positioned in the dark next to its burrow for several hours.

Series producer Alastair Fothergill said it was “very, very emotional” to witness. He said: “David just hasn’t changed. He has a boyish enthusiasm for nature. It was an amazing night.”

The late Sir Terry Wogan, whose broadcasting career began in the 1960s, came second in the Perspectus Global poll.

And Sir Bruce Forsyth came third, following a glittering career which saw him present a string of Saturday night prime-time hits including The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right, Bruce’s Price is Right and co-hosting Strictly Come Dancing.

The broadcasting legends were closely followed by Graham Norton, Jon Snow, Cilla Black, Claudia Winkleman, Ant and Dec, Les Dawson and Jimmy Carr, who made up the top ten favourites.

Almost half of the Brits who took part in the survery said being genuine is what makes a great TV host.

However, over half said they thought the calibre of hosts has fallen in recent years, with 51% going as far as to say it is a dying art.
