Frost stepped in instead of Don while the 65-year-old Don isolated during the coronavirus lockdown in April, and then again in July.

Gardeners' World said: "Monty's taking a break from Gardeners' World this week, so we're back at Adam's again tomorrow night. And don't forget we're on at the later time of 9.00pm. We'd hate you to miss out!"

Frost will feature ornamental grasses from his garden in Lincolnshire. 

Monty Don's Longmeadow garden in Herefordshire has been damaged by recent storms. He tweeted: "Huge rainstorm last night [12 August] - battered and bashed everything but that is a fair price for the watering and relief from the heat. Only trouble is we have a GW magazine photoshoot this afternoon - so frantic repair work going on first."

Don also tweeted: "We film a week ahead - so last week off."

Meanwhile, @GrahamWillis5 tweeted: "Adam is a far better presenter IMHO (does not preach like Monty) and always love the nod to Geoff [Hamilton]."

Carla Steendam said: "Adam kind of grows on one, so definitely will be tuning in."

Anne Jackson said: "I like Monty but I also like Frostie!! Will be tuning in."
