Top of the Plots consisted of ten episodes and has now, sadly, come to an end! Over the course of the mini-series, Charlie, David and Harry gave their verdict on the most memorable moments from the past five series and all the challenges that have seen them go head to head. However, now with the mini-series finished, viewers are no doubt hoping for some brand new episodes pretty soon.

They added: "We are however hoping to make a couple of exciting announcements over the coming weeks so watch this space!"

The news of its return was welcomed by fans of the show, with many taking to the replies to share their excitement. One person simply wrote: "Can't wait!" while another added: "Easily the best programme on telly for me. All the designers are incredibly talented people. This is the only programme series, I don't mind watching repeat after repeat." Others were keen to know when applications to take part in the series would be next open. One eager viewer wrote: "Love the programme and have a garden in dire need of inspiration! Please let me know as soon as you're open for applications again!"
