Monty Don: Gardeners' World host opens up on 'bleak' health battle 'It got worse'

Back in May, Monty’s other golden retriever died after suffering “violent, unstoppable seizures”.

The dog made regular appearances on BBC Two’s Gardeners’ World and even lent his name to Monty’s book Nigel: My Family and Other Dogs.

Monty told The Times: “It’s a proper bereavement. It’s true love and, as with losing anyone you love, it’s real grief. The only good thing is that he had a long life, a happy life, and no illness.

“He suddenly started fitting one night and it got worse and worse and he had a brain tumour and that was it.”
