Dermot O'Leary and Dee Koppang

Dermot O’Leary celebrated the launch of his new children’s book ‘Toto the Ninja Cat and the Great Snake Escape’ with an event at ZSL London Zoo’s reptile house on Sunday 24 September, where he and his wife Dee Koppang announced their new roles as Ambassadors for the international conservation charity, ZSL, which runs the Zoo and projects in more than 50 countries around the world.

The book, which is set in and around ZSL London Zoo – including the Reptile House - is the first to be penned by the TV and radio presenter.

Dermot O’Leary said: “I’ve been a huge fan of ZSL London Zoo for a long time, and I’m so proud to work closely with them to highlight the brilliant work they do to protect wildlife in so many ways.”
