'Ground Force' ran from 1997 to 2005

‘Ground Force’ ran for 12 series between 1997 and 2005, with millions tuning in to see Charlie and her co-stars Alan Titchmarsh and Tommy Walsh transform the back gardens of unsuspecting members of the public. 

And with September marking 20 years since it first appeared on BBC Two, horticulturist Charlie told The Sun she’s heard plans are afoot to celebrate it. 

“I have heard whisperings,” she said, before admitting she fears she may now be too old to do the programme.
