Matt Baker, 42, has admitted his late pet Border Collie, Meg, had a bit of a reputation for causing “chaos” during her appearances alongside him on Blue Peter. The Countryfile presenter shared the revelation as he reflected on his memories with the adorable dog in the studio.
He recalled that sheep dog Meg couldn’t get away from her “instinct to round everything up”.
Matt divulged: “It could be chaos in the studio, because when we were live on air she’d skulk away from me and run around, trying to herd all the camera operators and floor staff and guests.
“Her instinct was to round everything up.”
The former The One Show star also opened up about losing Meg in 2011.

He added to Radio Times in a recently unearthed interview: “Losing her in 2011 was the worst.
“You have to learn to hold the memories close and not feel hard done by.
