Charlie Dimmock

Charlie Dimmock is a gardening expert and television presenter, who rose to fame in 1997 when she joined Alan Titchmarsh (already well respected), Tommy Walsh and Will Shanahan on the BBC television programme Ground Force. Since then, she has gone on to present her own programmes, including Charlie's Garden Army, The Joy Of Gardening and River Walks.

Charlie has also published several gardening reference books, aimed squarely at the popular market, has presented the BBC's coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show, and has even managed to get herself on Celebrity Masterchef. She currently enjoys some success with work for American TV company CBS with a small section of The Early Show, and writes a gardening column for the Mail On Sunday.

(Oh, okay - I was hoping to get away without mentioning it... er, them. Besides her expert gardening skills, her friendly and no-nonsense approach to water features and a good knowledge of all manner of flora, you won't be able to get through a single conversation with almost anyone on the subject of Charlie Dimmock without her penchant for not wearing a bra bursting into the conversation at some point. That's right... all that intelligence, skill and earthy knowledge pales into insignificance when compared to the sight of her dimmocks slapping together as she lifts an old railway sleeper into position. Deep breath, and... move along now.)
