Footballer David, 45, was keen hear the expert’s thoughts and asked: ‘You have done so much to open all our eyes to the issues facing our planet. Your programmes make us care about the natural world, and what we need to do to protect it.

‘You have travelled the globe many times over learning about nature. If you had one message for our children about the future of our world, what would it be?’ 

Sir David replied: ‘To look after the wild world of which we are a part. To care for the animals you see. Don’t waste things – don’t waste food or electricity.

Sir David explained: ‘You feel desperate’, before describing how ‘the most astonishing sight’ he’d ever seen in the natural world was when he went diving on the coral reef.

However when he dived down in almost exactly the same place years afterwards, he saw that the brightly coloured corals were left dead due to the rise in sea temperatures.   

He added: ‘Instead of that pageant of life, it was like a cemetery. All stark white. It had died. It had been killed by the rising temperature that we, humanity, have created.’ 

Netflix favourites: Sex Education stars Asa Butterfield, Kedar Williams-Stirling and Patricia Allison also appeared to ask a question in the video

She’s enjoying a loved-up trip to the Maldives with her new beau of five-months Carl Woods.

And Katie Price made sure all eyes were on her as she posed up a storm in a bright red swimsuit while hitting the beach on Sunday ahead of her bankruptcy hearing on Zoom.

The former glamour model, 42, who has been in a wheelchair since breaking her feet and ankles in July, looked sensational as she rested on her knees and worked on her tan.

Katie exuded confidence as she ran her hands through her long brunette tresses and channelled all her glam photoshoot experience to work all her best angles.

The beauty kept her accessories to a minimum, adding only a stylish pair of aviator sunglasses to protect her eyes from the sunshine.

At one point, Katie was seen readjusting her swimsuit straps and checking out her surgically-enhanced assets before taking a dip in the pool alongside an inflatable swan.

It comes after the former glamour model took to Instagram to share an extremely crude message about the couple’s sex life. 

Earlier in the weekend, the TV star had uploaded a snap of her partner alongside a gushing tribute that read: ‘I’ve said yes to everything @carljwoods your actually any girls dream come true and I’ve got you all to myself forever.’

The media personality later referred to their intimate relationship as she wrote in the comments section: ‘Omg. I didn’t see what you people have noticed as I’m use to it. 

‘But I suppose the secret is out @carljwoods is very big and the biggest I’ve ever had that’s a fact.’ (sic)

While they appear to be loving life during the getaway, it has been reported that Katie is set to attend a bankruptcy hearing via Zoom.

The Brighton native is returning to court after someone ‘anonymously tipped the court off’ about her multiple holidays, lavish lifestyle and Instagram advertising. 

She is not set to attend Tuesday’s hearing in person as she is staying at five-star resort You & Me Maldives, with rooms coming with a price tag of an eye-watering £1,400-a-night.

A source told The Sun: ‘Katie’s told her team that she can attend by Zoom from her Maldives holiday.

‘She doesn’t see a problem with it – she’s taking the whole thing very seriously – and says the holiday’s not an issue as Carl paid for the holiday.’ 

Since she was declared bankrupt in November last year, the former Page 3 star has enjoyed holidays to Turkey, New York, Spain and Thailand.

Her bankruptcy came after the High Court found she had failed to stick to a plan to repay her debts, estimated to be around £800,000.

The businesswoman is reportedly not due to be discharged from her bankruptcy until next month and is supposed to pay any money she makes to creditors.  

This includes both money that she makes through work or any income from selling her belongings.

Katie’s representative told the publication: ‘Katie won’t be attending next week’s hearing in person, this is subject to location and under Covid regulations.’

The occasional singer has repeatedly gushed over her partner during their sunny holiday. Taking to Instagram, Peter Andre’s ex-wife posted a loved-up selfie with Carl while they were on a yacht out at sea. 

Katie penned: ‘It feels so amazing to finally be happy and settled thanks to @carljwoods.’ 

The influencer, who was once worth more than £40million, was forced to give up her £1.3million 11-bedroom ‘mucky mansion’ earlier this year after signing the property over to a trustee.

The house in West Sussex, where Katie lived with her children, included a swimming pool, tennis court and horse stables.

Katie took out a second mortgage on the property in 2015 but faced monthly payments of £12,300, and is now thought to be £100,000 in arrears. She is also believed to have spent £120,000 on housekeepers, gardeners and nannies. 

The I’m A Celebrity star used to be able to fund her lifestyle through modelling, reality TV shows and fragrances when she was at the height of her fame in the 1990s and 2000s.

While Craig Revel-Horwood added: ‘Well they proved its absolute dynamite, I absolutely adored that routine… small little things [to improve] but what a fantastic partnership.’

Fans were gushing over the historic performance, as they took to Twitter to say they were ‘in tears’ while many said they were picking the pair as their winners.

A particularly emotional viewer said: ‘Katya looks amazing!! Her and Nicola have done an amazing job I’m crying watching this, knew I would. I love this pairing, I love this so much.’

The musician will be ‘actively involved in the development of the project’, according to Oak View Group (OVG), the company which is building the arena.

Harry, who grew up in Cheshire, said: ‘I’m incredibly proud and excited to be partnering with OVG on their plans for Co-op Live.

‘Manchester is an incredible city, filled with incredible people, and I couldn’t be happier being involved in this project. It very much feels like coming home.

‘I was drawn to this project on every level, from the opportunities it brings, to the contribution it will make to the city, and, most importantly, that it will allow even more live music to thrive in Manchester.

‘It’s just another sign that this amazing city continues to grow.’

Harry’s first job was delivering newspapers for a Co-op shop as a teenager, according to OVG. 

The £350 million project will create 3,500 jobs during construction and a further 1,000 jobs once the venue opens, according to OVG.

Francesca Bodie, OVG’s president of business development, said: ‘There’s no artist in the world right now better placed than Harry to advise us on delivering a first-class experience for visitors and artists at Co-op Live.

‘We’re focusing on building one of the world’s best arenas in Manchester and Harry’s advice and consultation is going to be invaluable as we work to deliver that.’

The venue will be built in the Eastlands area of the city and will continue the regeneration of the area started by the 2002 Commonwealth Games.

The venue was named Co-op Live after OVG partnered with retail giant Co-op to develop the site on the Etihad campus.  

Last month, the Watermelon Sugar singer postponed all of his planned performances for the rest of the year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

His next project is an acting role in Olivia Wilde’s new movie Don’t Worry Darling. alongside Florence Pugh and Chris Pine. 

The Fine Line singer made his acting debut in 2017 film Dunkirk and producers were apparently impressed with his efforts in the war flick.
