Gardens are the place to be right now. Not only are we finally allowed to meet other people in them, even the sun has made a brief appearance.

Just in time for the long Easter weekend, Monty Don and his team bring this special to encourage us to transform our outdoor spaces.

At Longmeadow, Monty, pictured below, plants out sweet peas for summer colour, while Carol Klein is at RHS Rosemoor to revel in the spring sensations that brighten up the season.

Plus there’s a look back at how Nick Bailey transforme­d his back garden in one season from a blank space into a colourful and productive oasis.

Another starry lineup for the King of Chat Graham Norton, who has seen us through lockdown with a steady stream of celebritie­s on the promo trail.

Joining him tonight is Basic Instinct and Casino star Sharon Stone, pictured, who talks about her memoir The Beauty Of Living Twice.

Hollywood actresses Octavia Spencer and Melissa McCarthy are on hand to discuss their roles in new superhero comedy Thunder Force as the latest female double act.

Also appearing are Friends actor David Schwimmer and Frank Skinner, who is about to embark on his nationwide tour Showbiz.

Later on, Steps will perform Heartbreak In This City.
