The nature attraction was visited by Francine Lewis, a finalist last year in the popular ITV show who made headlines for her impressions of Stacey Solomon and Katie Price.

Yesterday (Thursday) she held a stick insect for the first time at Butterfly World, and later tweeted she had had a “fab time” and that anyone who knew her would be “shocked” to see a photo of her holding an insect.

Francine joked: “Who knows maybe I could do the jungle.”

Renowned broadcaster and naturalist David Bellamy is joining a bug hunt bonanza at Butterfly World, located off Noke Lane in Chiswell Green, tomorrow, Saturday June 28.
