The 66-year-old shares three grown-up children, Tom, Adam and Freya, with his wife Sarah. The couple are already proud grandparents to two-year-old George, who was born in 2019.

Monty was unable to present the show as he was busy giving talks and gardening demonstrations at this year's RHS's Malvern Spring Festival - the same location where the latest episode of the show was presented from!
