Sadly, for my children, I am the complete opposite of Steve Backshall. A wasp will force me from a room or picnic faster than Usain Bolt – screaming and flapping my arms like my five year old does when I ask her to finish her broccoli. But the fact that I wasn’t stung until I was 39 years old proves this tactic works.
Steve Backshall is Sam’s hero. Sam gets stung by wasps about five times a year.
