'The BBC finally listened!' Monty Don causes a stir with major Gardeners' World update

Monty did take a break from presenting the show between 2008 and 2011 due to issues with his health.

In February 2008, Monty suffered a minor stroke at his home and when symptoms did not improve he went to get a brain scan.

It revealed a temporary blockage in one of his arteries to the brain and he put his career on hold to recover.

He is back on the show now, stronger than ever, and has spoken candidly about his physical and mental health issues over the years.
