BBC looking for new Gardeners World presenter

I just saw that some people mentioned on the Forkers thread that the BBC is looking for a new presenter for Gardeners's World, next to the current ones.

I first heard about that about a week ago. image

Details here, but you have to be quick if you want to apply image.

Monty Don metioned it on Twitter on 13 January.

So in case you think you'd be the ideal candidate....

    I go with either. Alys seemed to disappear along with Toby Buckland.

    If they want fresh blood, why not try a youngster. What was the name of that young lad at Chelsea last year... he seemed a natural.

    Chris Beardshaw or Matthew Wilson for me.   Both fully qualified, with wide experience and are articulate so can communicate their knowledge and enthusiasm to others.  

    Unlikely to happen though as both would show up Monty's shortcomings.

    Or Mr. Titchmarsh could get back to his roots.

    Russel Sprout ?  Too green I thinkimage
