He went on to give them a taster of what fans can expect from his garden, which is tucked away in the gorgeous market town of Witney in the Oxfordshire countryside. "I've tried to maximise all of the courtyard space, by filling it with my favourite plants and adding features to create a secluded and relaxing environment," he wrote.

Steve announced the exciting news to his followers on Instagram

Needless to say, we can't wait to see Steve's green space for ourselves, as the TV star has only shared snippets of it on Instagram in the past.

Recently he revealed his delight at discovering that the pond he had installed in his garden has attracted frogs and is "teaming with life".
