Her love for travelling has been well documented.
In 2005, the presenter revealed her favourite spots to jet off to.
She told The Independent: “I adored Trinidad; I was there for the carnival.
“I fell in love with the island because it was completely absorbed by the festival, which lasted for days.”
Revealing her worst holiday, Taylor said: “I was in Bangkok and got on a bus on my own, which I believed was going into town.
“One by one the locals got off until there was only one other passenger, and the driver turned the lights out.
“I was petrified. However, the driver kindly took me to the Khao San Road, where I was meant to be.”
Countryfile will air on BBC One at 7pm on Sunday, August 9.
