Winterwatch fans left open-mouthed as show airs badger threesome sex scene | The Sun

WINTERWATCH fans were left viewing open-mouthed as an X-rated display unfolded on their screens.

The gentle nature show turned rather more sexual than the presenters were bargaining for – as a group of badgers engaged in a 'threesome'.


Viewers were watching the badgers in Love Island-style night vision on the BBC Two evening show.

The black and white creatures, who live in dens called setts, then turned away from one another and rubbed their bums together.

It fell to Winterwatch host Gillian Burke to explain what was going on, saying: "They're scent marking each other.

"A more descriptive word would be 'anal rubbing'."

The nature expert, 47, added: "Now we do like a little bit of anal rubbing on the watches here so yes, this is what they do."

Viewers quickly piled in on social media after the broadcast, which was broadcast live from Edinburgh Zoo.

One remarked, referring to an earlier comment about a large rodent who had appeared in shot: "Anal rubbing, and the beaver is out! Only on #winterwatch."

Another called it a "Hall of Fame live TV presenting moment".

Gillian who was co-presenting alongside Iolo Williams while Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan were at a different shoot in Norfolk.

The animals popped up earlier than expected with the host explaining: "This is more like it, this is eight individuals.

"We think there's up to ten in this clan. And they're really active when they first emerge."
