The way I see it, if you do not like the presenter or programme then do not watch "tis simples" as the Meerkats say. There are plenty of make over shows with young people strutting their stuff and if they entered my garden gate they would find the dog chewing their trouser legs (he is only little but fierce).
Monty gives both simple instruction for new starters and shows some of us very old hands what we have been doing wrong for years, the mix of the one hour show to me is perfect a bit of everything including Carol whom I love dearly. We have had the trendy younger presenters who threw expensive tools around and left them dangerously laying about, the bog land that got tons of topsoil dropped on it to no avail, the expensive trendy brick greenhouse that was not used to capacity and in the end the whole thing dropped quietly to die away. The BBC work on numbers, Monty and Nigel bring in those numbers and if something is working then leave it alone. People will ask me did I see the latest death and destruction on Corrie or some young wannabe thrown out of a jungle. NO I do not watch, I have an on off switch on my TV.
