Ben Fogle and Liz Bonnin will team up with agricultural expert Paul Heiney to present ITV's 'Countrywise', which explores the best of the British coast and country

Ben Fogle and Liz Bonnin have joined 'Countrywise.'

The TV action man and the wildlife biologist will team up with returning farming and agricultural expert Paul Heiney for the new series of the ITV show, which will see the trio explore the hidden beauty of rural Britain, while taking viewers on an energetic tour of the countryside and coast.

Ben said: "I am hugely excited to be joining the 'Countrywise' team, alongside Paul and Liz. I have travelled all over the world but I have to say you really can't beat the great British countryside."

Liz is looking forward to getting her teeth stuck in to science and getting up close and personal with the wildlife.

She explained: I'm excited to be joining Paul and Ben on Countrywise. As we explore and showcase the British countryside my job is to investigate the country's most pressing wildlife and conservation issues and find out how science is tackling them. I can't wait to get started."

On his return to the series Paul said: "A new series with some new faces, but Countrywise's heart is in the same place - in Britain's best and most beautiful countryside. There's nowhere better and we're very lucky to have it as the place where we go to work."

'Countrywise' will return to screens in September.
