Did this 'debate' happen when G'sW was filmed in Alan Titchmarsh's garden, or at Barnsdale?
Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Monty only wanted to present the programme again if it could be filmed from his own garden as he had just recovered from illness. Frankly I think he's a brave man to put up with film/camera crew etc. week after week. Must be very stressful and I, for one, wouldn't do it for any amount of money.
I reckon all the presenters have done a damn good job over the years
And for what it's worth... that's all I have to say on the subject.
