She was mentioned even more coincidentally in the song “Michaela Strachan, you broke my heart (when I was 12)” by the British band Scouting for Girls.

In which shows did Michaela Strachan appear?
Michaela is currently best known for her role on the BBC series Springwatch.
However, that’s far from the only thing she’s been in.
In January 2014, she was a contestant on Series 2 of the short-lived celebrity diving television show Splash!
Many will remember her for her CBBC series The Really Wild Show, which was a huge hit in the early 90s and 2000s.
“I’ve always had a thing for animals and wildlife, especially animal welfare, although I didn’t know much at the time,” she told Discover Wildlife.
“I was then promoted to The Really Wild Show, and the rest is history!”
The show gave her the opportunity to experience things she had never dreamed of.
She told Escapism Magazine, “The most amazing experience I’ve ever had is diving with sharks. I am a real shark fan.
“I hand-fed them – not everyone agrees, but I have to say it was an amazing experience. I’ve dived with hammer heads, I’ve dived with great whites in the cage: all of my shark experiences have been full of adrenaline in my opinion! “
