This included a segment about a garden on a houseboat, which first aired last year.

While the follower wasn’t too pleased with its inclusion, plenty of other viewers praised the show.

One wrote: “Wow, I was so proud of my paltry pots until seeing your drifts of fritillaries, Fabulous.”

“Fabulous my perfect evening in,” added another fan of the gardening show.

A third penned: “Thoroughly enjoyed all of Monty Don’s garden programs. Learnt (sic) a lot.”

“Cannot wait!”, wrote another while a fifth added: “Looking forward to it.”

Monty often responds to his followers on Twitter about the show, including when he addressed a BBC complaint last week.

A viewer complained about the show being on at 9pm, which was a bit late for them.

They penned: “Slightly disappointed it’s not on until 9pm. Will it always be at this time?”

Monty agreed with them, replying: “Me too. I hope not.”

Gardeners’ World is on BBC Two at 9pm on Fridays.
