David Attenborough a dream Desert Island castaway

By Joe Nerssessian

Desert Island Discs presenter Kirsty Young has revealed that Sir David Attenborough has been her favourite guest on the BBC Radio 4 show so far.

The veteran wildlife television presenter appeared as a castaway on the programme for the fourth time in 2012.

As Desert Island Discs marks its 75th year, Young - who has hosted it since 2006 - said she fell "a little bit in love" with Sir David during his interview on the show.

She told Radio Times: "David Attenborough, I mean, if I only ever did one, it would be that one.

"Honestly, he was a total, pure highlight. Absolutely bloody marvellous."
