In an exclusive interview, Charlotte Smith revealed that she wouldn’t mind doing something else alongside Countryfile. The long-standing presenter spoke about working with the Countryfile team and the amazing experiences she’s witnessed during her time on the show as well as what the future may hold for her away from the BBC nature series.

Speaking exclusively to, Charlotte talked about the possibility of leaving the show to work on other projects.

She explained: “Oh yeah, of course, I mean I wouldn’t leave it, I’d just do other things as well.

“I mean, I’m very available for something warm in a studio because it’s coming up to winter, so if you want to employ me to do something warm in a studio in winter, that would be great.

“I hope I never – I wouldn’t want to leave, to be honest, I love it; I would just like to do something else,” she said.

She also spoke about being part of the Countryfile team, exclaiming: “Oh, it’s lovely, it’s such a nice programme to work on it’s really lovely. 

“I mean, basically, I get paid to go to the most beautiful parts of the UK and talk to really interesting people.

“I mean what’s not to like, it’s the best job ever, and lots of people you go and see make you cake because farms are really hospitable, so there’s always cake and tea, and it’s brilliant,” she laughed. 

Charlotte reminisced on her favourite parts of the show, adding: “I think that really, just getting around the country, so this week has been a bit mad I’ve been working in North Wales, Derbyshire, Cumbria and Kent.


“I am a bit tired, but I mean how fantastic is that to work in all those different places this week we were really lucky with the weather it was just fantastic.

“I mean, there are days where your knee-deep in a bog and it’s pouring with rain, and you do begin to wonder why you’re doing it, but mainly it’s just a joy,” she described.

“I mean, you know, on Countryfile, we are quite boring. We do talk about waterproof clothing, and as long as you’ve got the right clothes, even if it’s raining, it can be quite fun.”

Speaking on the backlash to features included on the show, which can divide some viewers, Charlotte said: “I don’t get involved, to be honest, that’s how I do that. I just, it’s above my pay grade.”

Joining Charlotte on the ramble this year is Matt Baker, Ellie Harrison, Tom Heap, Margherita Taylor, and Steve Brown. 

Charlotte will be joined by siblings Ailsa and Finn in Stonehaven, Scotland, on her ramble to which she excitedly said: “I’m delighted to be part of it.

“It’s such a brilliant idea, as a way of raising money for Children in Need because it’s all your favourite things at once, which is being outside, it’s brilliant I’m really pleased to be involved.”

The rambles will take place in October, and The Countryfile Ramble for BBC Children in Need will air on BBC One on October 24. 

Due to the ongoing circumstances of the pandemic, the general public has been encouraged to get involved in their own sponsored rambles to help raise money.
