Randometer alert: David Attenborough calls Bjork 'honey' during nature documentary.
Sir David Attenborough was so enchanted by Bjork while working with her, he chose to call her 'honey'. And she wasn't even in the Swan ensemble she wore to the 2001 Oscars. Although the term of endearment might have stemmed from the fact he can't pronounce her name... More on that in a minute.
The natural history TV presenter struck up a friendship with the It's Oh So Quiet singer when they filmed a documentary together in which they explore music in nature, entitled Attenborough and Bjork: The Nature of Music, and David admits he finds the Icelandic musician mesmerising.
David - who admits he can't say Bjork's name properly - revealed: "I called her 'honey' [while filming]. She is really quite enchanting."
The 86-year-old TV star and Bjork, 47, got on so well they worked together on another project with David recording a spoken-word introduction for her album Biophilia, which incorporated live exhibitions and iPad apps. In the documentary the broadcaster reveals his own passion for music and introduce footage of the lyre bird, reed warbler and blue whale to show the music that exists in the animal kingdom.
Bjork is not the first famous filly to catch the eye of David. During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show this year, Cameron Diaz fell for his charm but as much as he enjoyed her company, David insisted they weren't as cosy as they looked on screen.
He added to The Sun: "The camera angle made it look as if I was sitting on her lap, or vice-versa. It wasn't quite like that! Well, I like the company of human beings, and they are more than 50 per cent of the population, so yes. I like the company of women."
David can next be seen on TV screens in Galapagos 3D with David Attenborough which will be broadcast on New Year's Day (01.01.13) at 7pm on Sky 3D and in 2D on Sky 1HD. Consider yisserselves informed.
