Alan Titchmarsh is one of Britain’s most well-known and best loved gardeners, having fronted the BBC’s hugely successful Ground Force and Gardeners’ World. He now presents his own daytime show for ITV, The Alan Titchmarsh Show, which continues to go from strength to strength now in its eighth series. Other TV works have included How To Be A Gardener, Royal Gardeners, The Nature of Britain and the Chelsea Flower Show, All the Queens Horses and Seasons, to name just few. Alan also presents a show on BBC Radio 2, Melodies For You. In early 2010 Alan co-presented ITV1’s Pop Star to Opera Star.
For 2011 Alan went back to his roots with a brand new gardening show, Love Your Garden, to be aired on ITV in prime time on June 10th. Also we can look forward to seeing Alan presenting The Chelsea Flower Show from Sunday 22nd May, The Duke at 90 and series nine of The Alan Titchmarsh Show. If that’s not enough for one year he will be releasing his ninth anticipated Novel in the autumn.
As well as all Alan’s TV accolades he has written two volumes of memoirs, over forty gardening books, seven novels and he contributes regularly to BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine, Radio Times, The Daily Express and Sunday Express. Alan was appointed MBE in 2000, a Deputy Lieutenant of Hampshire in 2001, when he was also immortalised by Madame Tussaud’s, and in 2004 received the Victoria Medal of Honour, the highest accolade in the British gardening world. He was appointed High Sheriff of the Isle of Wight from April 2008 until April 2009.
