Monty Don: Gardeners' World host filmed BBC show as dog Nigel spent final hours at vets

Monty recalled encountering another difficult issue, as he was unable to bury his beloved dog straight away due to his filming schedule.

The horticulturalist continued: “But I said, ‘I can’t bury him tonight or tomorrow because I’m filming’, so they put him in the freezer.

“The whole thing was incredibly gut-wrenchingly sad, but at the same time hysterically funny so I said, ‘Please make him look nice’.

“And they said, ‘We’re going to have to fit him in’ and he was a big dog!”

The father-of-three has two remaining dogs, Nell and Patti, who are regularly seen on his Instagram account and on Gardeners’ World.
