Ellie Harrison has been part of the Countryfile team since 2009 when she made her debut on the popular BBC series. Tonight, Ellie will join fellow Countryfile star Joe Crowley as they visit the Lake District in celebration of the birth of English poet William Wordsworth.
Does the Countryfile star have social media?
Ellie is seen to have an Instagram account under the name @ellieharrisonoriginof.
On her account, Ellie has roughly 7,500 followers and but only follows 14 other accounts.
The Countryfile presenter has not posted on the account since January with there only being one picture on her feed.

In September last year, Ellie opened up on how she prefers to keep off social media.
The presenter revealed the reason behind her absence from social media was because it “wasn’t bringing anything warm or good”.
She said: “I don’t have Twitter or Instagram and anything that’s programme specific is dealt with by the producers, unless there’s anything in particular I need to be pulled up on, then I tend not to hear about it. And I choose to keep it that way.
“I had Twitter until Christmas then I came off everything at the same time thinking this isn’t lifting me up, this isn’t bringing anything warm or good into my life.”
She added: “It wasn’t because I was getting feedback particularly because I think if you want to hear praise, then you have to hear criticism too.
“You can’t cherry-pick what you hear, and I’ve always taken the stance that I prefer not to hear anything than try to hear good or bad.
“But if you do this job you’re essentially standing up on stage and saying, ‘Look at me, look at me’.
“You can’t then be upset or call people bullies if they don’t like you because you’ve asked them to look at you.”

She later admitted how she feels the concept of social media is “strange”.
The Countryfile presenter said: “I think there’s quite a strange pathology around being well-known.
“I’ve decided not to engage with, it and I’ll keep it that way for now.”
Away from her life on screen, Ellie has three children with her partner Matt Goodman.
Ellie gave birth to her eldest daughter Red in 2010, followed by son Lux the following year.
In 2016, Ellie welcomed her third child a son, however, she has kept his name private.
Ellie previously told the Radio Times of how she wants her children to see her work in a job she loves.
She said: “I didn’t have them to be raised by somebody else.
“But having said that, I want them to see me work and see me work in a job that I love.
“You simply can’t have it all. It’s absolutely different for daddies. It just is.
“If you hear about women doing the same, people look on very anxiously and nervously.”
Countryfile will air tonight on BBC One at 5.45pm.
