Monty Don sparks frenzy as he announces new family arrival after Gardeners’ World absence

Fortunately for fans of the show, Monty was fine, and was just unable to host the programme because he was busy giving talks and gardening demonstrations to visitors at this year’s RHS’ Malvern Spring Festival.

Monty was replaced by Adam Frost and Arit Anderson last week.

The star is set to resume his hosting duties soon, as he recently shared a behind-the-scenes insight into Gardeners’ World filming.

Monty shared a photo of his two beloved dogs, golden retriever Nell and Yorkshire terrier Patti, at Longmeadow.

“Ready for action!” He captioned the Instagram post, which was shared with his one million followers.
