Monty, 67, appeared to share fans’ sadness as he told them that tonight’s (October 28) episode of Gardeners’ World will be the last of the current series.

He had already revealed that filming had wrapped and that the BBC show would return for the next series in March.

However, Monty did have some good news for Gardeners’ World fans. He reassured his 293, 400 followers that there will still be special winter episodes on every Friday in December to keep them going.

Monty said: “Tonight is the last Gardeners’ World of this series (although there will be a special winter mini series every Friday night in December).

“It is on BBC2 at NINE pm and it is very, very good.”

Fans were quick to share their disappointment at their beloved Monty’s news.

“I’m always sad when it’s the last programme! I will have to spend the next few months planning extra plants for my garden instead,” said one loyal Gardeners’ World fan, following her tweet up with a fitting plant emoji and sharing a picture of her own stunning garden.

“What will I look forward to on a Friday now???” quizzed another die-hard fan.

“Always sad when it’s the last episode, Fridays are not the same! Look forward to seeing the gang next year,” someone else said.

Another admitted: “I’m in complete denial!”

It was clear followers had enjoyed the series, with one replying to Monty’s tweet: “Thank you Monty, crew and dogs for helping to keep us all sane(ish) with a weekly dose of calm. look forward to the winter mini series.”

Another also thanked him, saying: “This time of the year always sneaks up on me. Thank you (and the whole crew) for another year of great gardening stories. ‘See you’ next year, hope the winter treats you well.”

This update comes after Monty recently shared some exciting career news that will no doubt be taking over his time.

The series finale of Gardeners’ World will air on BBC 2 tonight (October 28) at 9pm.
