When he's not spying on swans or stroking badgers, it seems that BBC host Chris Packham's been slipping The Smiths' song titles into his presenting patter on TV's Springwatch (nope - us neither) show. And if that wasn't reason enough to like the guy, apparently he does it just to annoy Bill Oddie.

Which is a pretty good reason to do just about anything.
