Opening up about his interactions with the royals, he said: "I met the Queen at the Chelsea Flower Show, which was a lovely conversation." Adam coyly added: "I'm not going to tell you the full story because I tell the full story on the tour!"

He continued: "I think with what's gone on in the last month or so, you realise those little moments are precious." Adam met the monarch while at the iconic annual flower event, a staple in the late monarch's calendar. It was at the horticulture awards show where Adam gained recognition for his talents in garden design.

Adam continued: "That's probably one of the best things about gardening is that you can have a conversation with a monarch, but actually you can talk to old Jim down the allotment.

"And that's the wonderful thing about gardening is that it bridges class, race, you talk to people from around the world. Something we have in common is that we can put or hands in the soil."

The TV presenter also told HELLO! about what fans who go along to his tour can expect. "Really the whole tour is my life through gardens. What they, and the people I've met along the way, mean to me and why I do what I do.

"Hopefully there's some moments when people take a moment and think and there's other moments when they hopefully smile and laugh."
