But Titchmarsh is in discussions about a new gardening project with the BBC, the corporation has confirmed. The BBC will announce this news next week.
The Daily Mail reported today that the 60-year-old presenter is in advanced discussions with the BBC to reprise the Gardeners' World presenting role he held between 1996 and 2002.
Earlier this spring the show was relaunched with a new main presenter, Toby Buckland, at a new base in Birmingham. The new series has won mixed reviews.
Buckland replaced Monty Don, who stepped down after suffering a minor stroke. A BBC representative said: "Alan is a fantastic broadcaster and of course we'd love to have him back at the BBC so we're talking to him about a number of new projects."
