I'll never understand why people are so mean about Monty... his advice hasn't let me down thus far, and he's an inoffensive, gentle sort of chap. Makes a pleasant change to the noisy hedonism of other beeb presenters such as Clarkson and Paxman et all.
I agree, he is a very laid back and calm presenter and, as you say, inoffensive. I was a great fan of Alan when he was just a gardener but I won't watch his chat show - ugh!
As for Carol, I love it when she tours the pavilion because she seems to know just about everyone there and it's quite nice to have some natural banter going on.
