Unfortunately, however, the BBC show didn't make it to the final four nominees before the winner was revealed this week. The final four shows were The Chase, Loose Women, Good Morning Britain and This Morning, with the latter then revealed as the winner.

Despite missing out on the TV award, Garden Rescue remains the go-to show for fans and many are eagerly awaiting the sixth series, which is due to resume production later this year.
