Delighted to have won broadcast of the year for Adriatic Gardens at the #gmgawards. It was – of course – a team effort of which I was just one part,” he penned, sparking an influx of praise from his followers.

The award-winning programme is one of many shows Monty hosts for the BBC, including the hugely popular Gardeners’ World. 

Monty has fronted the show since 2003, taking over from previous host Alan Titchmarsh, but recently shared his plans to retire from his role in the next five years.

In an interview with The Guardian, Monty revealed that he hopes to make more documentaries as well as conserve his time and energy. 

On who he’d like to replace him, Monty said: “I would like to think the next Gardeners’ World presenter ideally would be female, would represent either singly, or in multiplicity, the diversity in this country, that has at least some urban context. I think all that leads to it not being just one garden anymore, because if it is one garden, it’s got to be a big one.”

Reflecting on the show’s future, he continued: “And it probably has to be in the country, and the further you get into the countryside, the less diversity there is.

“The world’s changing; we need to change with it. In many ways, it’s likely I’m the last middle-aged, middle-class white male with a large garden doing Gardeners’ World. Which is fine.”

When Monty’s not busy sharing his top gardening tips with BBC viewers, he can be found at his Herefordshire home, which he shares with his wife, Sarah.
