All new animal adventures as Secret Life of the Zoo returns

PELE: Legend will be guest of honour.

YOUR favourite animal-themed reality show The Secret Life of the Zoo is coming back to Channel 4.

A second series of the docu-drama set inside the famed Chester Zoo is premiering later this year and will include a Christmas special. Not only will you find out what happened to all of the babies born last series, but you’ll go on all-new adventures like tracking the night migration of elephants.

Viewers will also get up-close to the mating habits of the spectacled bear so be prepared for that! The Secret Life of the Zoo gives viewers a unique insight into the lives of our animals and throws a spotlight on the incredible passion and dedication of the keepers that care for them. 

Chester Zoo’s Dr Mark Pilgrim said “We care for more than 20,000 animals – from the weird to the wonderful – so there are plenty more remarkable species for viewers to get to know.” Channel 4’s second series of The Secret Life of the Zoo is scheduled to air later in the year.

Pele will be the guest of honour at the 10th anniversary of Soccer Aid. The Brazilian football legend will join the England and Rest of the World teams at Old Trafford for the ITV event on June 5. “I’m delighted to be guest of honour at Soccer Aid’s 10th anniversary,” Pele said. Robbie Williams, who is set to captain the England team, said: “He’s a global footballing icon and legend of the game and to have him being part of Soccer Aid really is a fantastic honour.”

Jose Mourinho acts as England coach, and is joined by footballers Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler, Phil Neville, David Seaman and Sol Campbell. England’s celebrities will include Louis Tomlinson, Olly Murs, Mark Wright, Marvin Humes, Paddy McGuinness, Jonathan Wilkes, Ben Shephard, Jack Whitehall, John Bishop and Jamie Theakston.

Meanwhile, on the Rest of the World squad, Michael Sheen captains with Claudio Ranieri as manager. Footballers include Cafu, Jaap Stam, Dimitar Berbatov, Samuel Eto’o, Edgar Davids and Jens Lehmann, with celebrities Niall Horan, Gordon Ramsay, Nicky Byrne and Rickie Haywood-Williams. Dermot O’Leary hosts the event, with Kirsty Gallacher reporting from the pitch and Clive Tyldesley, Chris Kamara and Howard Webb on commentary.
