IN THE third episode of Kate Humble's Coastal Walks the celebrity rambler explores some of the Jurassic Coast's best paths.

The celebrity travelogue focuses on Dorset tonight and follows Kate Humble as she explores this wonderful stretch of coast. 

Her latest TV series, Kate Humble’s Coastal Britain, traces England’s shores in Exmoor, Dorset, Yorkshire and Suffolk.

During tonight's episode viewers will be taken along the magnificent Jurassic Coast while  exploring the true gravitas of work that goes into looking after the landscape. 

In a recent interview with i magazine, Humble said: "The Dorset coast has always been dynamic because of the rock, but I discovered that Lyme should have been washed away decades ago."

Throughout tonight's episode Humble explores our breath-taking beaches, hunting fossils and spotting rare wildlife along the way.

In Dorset, she visited a familiar haunt on a fossil-hunting mission, sparking several fond childhood memories.

She said: "When I was younger, I had a great friend whose family lived inland from Lyme Regis."

In tonight's show she reminisces a time that she followed the trail of 19th century palaeontologist Mary Anning.

She said: "I love her story. At a time when women were overlooked and left to do the laundry, there was this incredible woman who managed to find an ichthyosaur fossil."

Returning to the area as an adult, Humble says she developed a new appreciation for the skills of fossil hunters.

She explained: "It's easy to assume these guys and women are lucky and stumble over rocks. But they know exactly how storms and erosion can reveal extraordinary things.

"They have a superhuman vision to see a shape in the rock that might contain a fossil. It was fascinating to learn about what our land hides and how people's knowledge has been built up to reveal it."

As someone who describes walking as "a very intrinsic part of my life", Humble said she revelled in every footstep of her journey. 

You can watch Kate Humble's Coastal Walks on Channel 5 tonight at 8pm.
