    I got really close to Monty some years ago (have a photo somewhere, have to see if l can find it). Unusually for me (!),  l came over all tongue tied, others were asking him questions but l found l couldn't say a word, just stared at him (poor man !).
    I found it so strange that here was someone l watched on TV every Friday night right in front of me,  and my brain couldn't cope !

    I would love to go. I think I would be like you Anni, totally starstruck! Unfortunately, all the shows are too far for me to travel. Are you going Marc? Enjoy your visit Debs. Lucky you.

    Yes I'm going Thursday on my birthday ☺ I'm happy because it's local and that's why I go. If it was in London or Manchester I wouldn't go as I'm not really a travelling kind of person. Saying that I did meet gardening royalty Charlie dimmock 😆 many years ago and my words didn't come out in a coherent way at all, just stuttered 😂 bet she thought I was on drink and drugs poor girl

    Local to me too Marc and the Good Food show is smashing too lots of free samples and good ideas, my OH is a chef so if he comes with me he is a happy bunny but going with daughter this year so I can concentrate on the plants. 
    We will be going to a talk by Monty at the show about wildlife gardening so looking forward to that.
