Gardeners’ World presenter Monty Don, 65, has a blue tick next to his name on his Instagram page, where he has 841,000 followers, but not on his Twitter. A blue tick is a coveted symbol used to verify somebody’s profile. One without the verification mark may mean that the account is not run by who it states.

Monty was asked why he didn’t have the symbol by a fan on his Twitter page.

The user wrote: “@TheMontyDon why don’t you have your blue mark? Blue tick?

“It’s had to tag you when I boast my gardening achievements. Hey @Twitter… help our green thumbed friend.”(sic)

Puzzled by her response, the presenter expert replied: “Not quite sure what this means. Blue mark?”

The Twitter user went on to explain that due to his extensive following, it would be better for fans to know it’s the real him.

Monty is a regular user on his social media pages where he often gives fans an insight into his Longmeadow garden.

Yesterday, he shared a picture of the sun reflecting on his patch.

He commented: “A lovely start to the day here at Longmeadow.”

Many of his fans flocked to his post to share their thoughts.

“It’s glorious this week. Let’s hope it continues,” one commented.

A second wrote: “Stunning as usual Monty.”

A third added: “Gorgeous light Monty! Just gorgeous!”

“Looks like a perfect day. Enjoy it Monty,” a fourth penned.

The gardener lives in Hertfordshire with his long-term wife Sarah Don, who he married in 1983, and their dog Nellie.

Last year, he announced their other dog Nigel had died.

He said in a statement: “This time last year, the old boy [was] soaking up some winter sun.

“To the end he was happy, healthy and his usual calm, lovely self.

“But he was suddenly taken ill and he slipped quietly away with no pain or suffering”.

Monty added they had decided to bury their pet pooch in the garden.

Gardeners’ World continues tonight at 9pm on BBC Two.
