Gardeners’ World has a huge presenting line-up with over 10 on-screen hosts that all bring their own flavour to the show. But as with any programme, fans will always have their favourites, and one took to social media to let Adam Frost know he has been well and truly missed in his absence. Adam, who is known for his successes at the Chelsea Flower Show, first joined Gardeners’ World alongside Monty Don in 2016 and he has become a true staple on the show.
Currently so staid, not enough recognition of no dig and biodiversity
He hasn’t been seen on-screen for a few weeks, and fans took to Instagram to ask him when he’d be back, moaning that the show was “staid” without him.
One penned: “When are you back hosting Gardeners World.
“Currently so staid, not enough recognition of no dig and biodiversity,” they complained.
Someone else agreed, adding: “Also waiting for Adams return to Gardeners World as enjoy the programme much more when he’s present.”
Adam simply let them know that he’d be back “soon”, without giving too much away.

During his hiatus from the gardening show, last month Adam joined The One Show hosts Alex Jones and Ronan Keating to help with their One Big Thank You segment.
The person they wanted to surprise was Duncan, who has been helping his local community by boosting their spirits and raising money for families financially hit by the pandemic.
Arriving at a local stately home, the guest had no idea what was in store until gardening fanatic and BBC star Adam emerged from the sidelines.
Prior to meeting Duncan, Adam explained: “What’s going to happen is I am going to be pretending to do a BBC Wales live piece about pruning a shrub. And then, it’s going to go a little bit wrong as Duncan’s going to appear and I’m going to drag him in and it’s all going to happen.”
To get the guest involved, he was asked to become part of the audience who were watching the Gardeners’ World star.
The first glimpse Duncan got of Adam was when he was pretending to rehearse for the segment but things took a turn for the worse.
All of a sudden, the bush fell away from the wall and the gardening guru seemed to be panicked about the blunder.
Needing someone to help him hold the bush, Adam called over Duncan to assist him with the live broadcast.
The guest didn’t seem too concerned as he followed the gardener’s instruction and held up the bush by the wall.
With the director telling them they were live on air, Adam said: “Do you know what, mate? This is not going to work.
“Actually, Duncan, can you stand up for me,” he added as the guest was confused as to how the presenter knew his name.
“This isn’t about the shrub. This is about you, pal,” Adam explained, as he got the guest ready for his surprise.
“I’m not here on behalf of Gardeners’ World. It’s for The One Show and there are a few people behind me that want to thank you.
“Because they’re blown away by what you’ve done,” he continued with the audience behind him beginning to clap for Duncan.
The guest was overcome with emotion as a few tears fell down his cheek over the demonstration of gratitude for his work.
“They are all here for you,” Adam explained, adding: “Even I’ve got goosebumps, mate. Well, they said you’re not normally stuck for words.”
“I just did what anyone would do, really,” Duncan replied, thanking the presenter for surprising him with such an event.
