WINTERWATCH viewers were left shocked tonight after Chris Packham joked he’s tried ‘anal jet propulsion’ – before warning them against it.
Tonight’s live episode saw Chris’ co-host Gillian Burke discussing nymph’s and how it takes in water via its anus.

After explaining to viewers why it uses anal jet propulsion with the help of a diagram, she linked back to Chris in the New Forest.
The 59-year-old joked: “I’ve tried anal jet propulsion, massive laundry bill, don’t try it at home.”
Viewers were shocked by his cheeky comment, with one writing on Twitter: “”Anal jet propulsion” not something I thought I would hear this evening #Winterwatch @BBCSpringwatch.”
Another added: “Wow! What a Friday night. Anal jet propulsion. #Winterwatch.”

A third tweeted: “‘Anal jet propulsion’ Cor, one phrase I wasn’t expecting to hear on @BBCSpringwatch #Winterwatch!”
Meanwhile an equally surprised viewer wrote: “Beavers, ringed woodcock and anal jet propulsion. As @ChrisGPackham likes to say, THIS is what you pay your licence fee for.”
It isn’t the first risque comment Chris has made during this week’s live shows.

In Tuesday’s episode the presenters stood in the New Forest woodland and explained they were going to wear paper animal masks to demonstrate how a fox hunts a mouse.
Chris whipped out the masks and explained to viewers: “I’ve got a couple of masks here because one of us is going to have to be a fox and one of us is going to have to be a mouse.
Chris said he was ‘feeling foxy’ in an episode earlier in the week
“I’m feeling quite foxy. I’ve got to tell you.”
Hearing mischief in his voice, Megan replied: “You’re feeling foxy? Just because you said that I’m going to be the fox. Come on,” and she grabbed the red mask from his hand.
“But they’re so precious to me! I was given them in a car park a little while ago. I’m going to be a mouse, then. I’m just not going to squeak,” Chris remarked.
Winterwatch is available on BBC iPlayer.
