Alan Titchmarsh revealed he has a hot tub in his back garden
Alan Titchmarsh has a hot tub in his back garden.
The 66-year-old presenter revealed he is "totally addicted" to his steamy jacuzzi, which rids him of his worries.
The former chat show host said: "I don't know anybody who's got in one who hasn't decided they're the best thing since sliced bread!
"It came with the house and we thought we'd get rid of it. But it was working so we thought we'd give it a go. Oh my goodness! The worries of the day melted away and I'm sorry, but I'm now a fan. I'm totally addicted."
The former 'Ground Force' star insisted it's important such a large item "blends in" with the rest of his garden.
He explained: "The key is, you have to plant around it really well so it blends in, because they're not pretty to look at.
"You sit in the thing, looking out at pretty things. It soothes the aches and pains I tell you. My wife Alison has a dodgy back and it helps her, so it's fantastic."
Alan was speaking about the device while promoting the latest series of 'Love Your Garden', which begins on ITV later this month, which he confessed can be emotional to work on.
He said: "I find it very difficult to do the voiceover. I often have to stop at the end and do it again because it's so moving when lovely things happen, when somebody does something unexpectedly kind, that always moves me to tears."
And while he ended 'The Alan Titchmarsh Show' in 2014, he believes he still made the right decision.
He told Radio Times magazine: "I loved it but I did hundreds of programmes over eight years. It gets very tiring. I'd interviewed pretty much everyone I wanted to. I wanted to go before people said 'Oh him again, hasn't he had enough?' "
