The broadcaster and naturalist, who was born in London, had leukaemia.

His agent John Miles said Nutkins died at home in Scotland yesterday, adding: “He had fought for about nine months or so with acute leukaemia.”

Nutkins found fame as co-presenter of the BBC children’s show Animal Magic with Johnny Morris and also featured in The Really Wild Show.

The 66-year-old Londoner grew up near Marylebone station and bunked off school to help out at London Zoo, where his expertise with animals became obvious.

Mr Miles said: “He was an absolutely lovely guy and just loved animals, and he was never happier than when he was with animals. We will all miss him very, very much.”
