It includes Albert the armadillo receiving a full health check as well as being micro chipped.
Mr Trickett said: “Austin was fantastic throughout the filming. Whilst he’s used to handling all sorts of animals, working around the cameras and crew was a first time experience but you’d never have known. I think that Austin took a lot from the whole experience, found it fun and also educational too.
“Austin discovered for example that an armadillo is in fact a mammal, not a reptile, as many others too may think.”
