Kate Humble thinks Chris Packham is a "brave" person after he received death threats.

The 50-year-old BBC presenter has praised her former "Springwatch" co-star, who has received several "death threats of a serious nature" after he successfully challenged a licensing system that allowed the shooting of 16 species of birds, and Kate insists the response to Chris" campaigning has been "completely unacceptable".

Speaking at the launch of a new initiative by intu to reconnect people with nature, she exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Kate said: "It's completely unacceptable, we are extremely lucky to live in a country where people are allowed to express their views, people are always going to have counter-views, people are always going to think differently, not everyone can agree on everything that's why we have a political process and a democracy.

"It takes a very brave person to continue standing up for their views.

"Chris's views are passionately held and they come from a place where he is not somebody who flip flops between trends. It is something he has thought about and cares deeply about and has a great deal of knowledge about, and I salute him for absolutely sticking to his point of view."

He said: "The police have spent quite a considerable amount of time at my house in recent days.

"Last night, I can't speak too much about what happened last night because I haven't been to the police yet."

The "Springwatch" host said the type of threats he's received were "much more serious".

He added: "Not just my family, its businesses I work with, small businesses I am associated with loosely ... I am very resistant to this sort of thing ... they can send me as much human excrement as they like.

"[There were] death threats of a very serious nature."

This came after two dead crows were strung up outside his home in a shocking protest last week.
