Tom Heap has opened up about a new exciting project to his social media followers as he announced a project outside of Countryfile. The broadcaster explained he is planning on releasing a new book, as he admitted to feeling “a little bit nervous”.

The current affairs presenter shared the news last week with his 11,000 followers.

Called 39 Ways to Save The Planet, the new book is all about exploring things being done to combat climate change.

Tweeting the news, he said: “Excited, hopeful and a little bit nervous – and that’s just me!”

He shared the BBC Book’s tweet about his upcoming release.

This read: “We got ourselves into this. Here’s how we can get ourselves out.

“Pre-order your copy of @tomheapmedia’s 39 Ways to Save The Planet now.”

The foreward of the book will also be written by none other than Hollywood legend Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This is something which left Tom’s followers excited, with one replying: “Forward by Arnie!

“Can’t wait to see what he said (and read the book too of course).”

The Countryfile presenter then joked: “A little teaser – the word ‘Terminate’ is in there.”

Other followers also sent the star supportive messages as they shared their excitement.

One wrote: “That’s on my Christmas book present list, if I can wait that long!”

Channel 5 broadcaster Andy Bell also replied, writing: “Nice one Tom.”

“Looks great Tom,” penned a third as a fourth added: “Congratulations!”

The official synopsis of the book reads: “We have already devised many ways to reduce climate change – some now proven, others encouraging and craving uptake. Each one is a solution to get behind.

“In 39 Ways to Save the Planet, Tom Heap reveals some of the real-world solutions to climate change that are happening around the world, right now.

“From tiny rice seeds and fossil fuel-free steel to grazing elk and carbon-capturing seagrass meadows, each chapter reveals the energy and optimism in those tackling the fundamental problem of our age.”

The book follows Tom’s BBC Radio 4 podcast series of the same name earlier this year.

Published by Penguin, it is set for release on October 14 this year.

However, fans shouldn’t be worried about Tom’s presenting future following the news.

He previously revealed to Express.co.uk how he plans to stay hosting Countryfile for the foreseeable future.

Asked if he’d like to stay earlier this year, he said: “Yeah, I mean I love doing Countryfile.

“Very few programmes do you get to do crafted films in beautiful locations with interesting people around 10 minutes most weeks.”

Countryfile airs tonight on BBC One at 6.30pm.
