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

The beauty carried a printed  blanket over one arm and a cream satchel as she strolled to rehearsal.

Her tresses were left flowing over her shoulders and she accessorised with a pair of shades and silver hoop earrings.

She was swiftly followed into rehearsal by Bill, who appeared to be carrying a covered birdcage into the studios.

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.
