Gardeners' World's Monty Don posts first pic of new family arrival after being left 'bedridden for days'

GARDENERS' World fans have been left stunned as Monty Don revealed he battled Covid after welcoming a new granddaughter.

The gardening guru, 66, issued a warning to fans as he returned work following four bedridden days that 'knocked him sideways'.

Monty took to Twitter to reveal the shock news he had contracted Covid and was 'exhausted'.

"Have been in bed with Covid for the past 4 days but much better today- however, it isn't much fun and boy, doesn't it knock you sideways! Utterly exhausted," he wrote.

But the TV star returned to work only a few days later and managed to pull off a long day of filming.

Monty also revealed to fans that almost the entirety of his crew had caught Covid in the past two moths.

"Full 10 hr GW filming day in the garden – came through tired but fine. Of our regular team only two have not had covid since March. It is still very much around," he tweeted.

Fans were happy Monty was back on his feet and warned him to take it easy.

 "It's good to hear that you coped with a day's filming Monty, something for us all to look forward to, but be sure to take it slowly, it really does impact on you," replied one fan.w

Another added: "I'm glad you felt well enough to film. Take care, Monty."

And third wrote:  "Be careful to not do too much just after you have had covid… Lots of evidence surfacing that people launch back into heavy/normal activity too soon whilst still recovering tend to get long covid .. in their rush to get back to work."

Monty's Covid battle came just day after as his son, Adam, recently welcomed a baby girl named Daisy Rose Don, younger sister to George.
