Top TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh will be back on the box early in 2015 – with a brand new series.

Alan Titchmarsh will present new show Britain’s Best Back Gardens, which is due to get underway on ITV in early January.

The former Ground Force host, who recently quit his ITV daytime chat show, drew up to four million viewers on Love Your Garden this summer.

Britain’s Best Back Gardens saw Alan travel the UK this year, in a quest to find the finest domestic plots that are worthy of a slot on prime-time national TV.

Earlier in 2014, Alan told AG he wanted to find domestic gardens that would “knock people’s socks off”.

He said: “It will be the type of gardens that you find in the National Gardens Scheme, AG readers’ gardens.”

Britain’s Best Back Gardens starts on 6 January, ITV at 8pm.
