Monty Don issues stern warning to fans after becoming target of trolls

Monty Don presents Gardeners’ World

Monty Don shared a photo of one of his beloved golden retrievers grinning as he informed his followers of catfish profiles preying on his large fan base.

The Gardeners’ World host assured fans he only had one public account and his private profile would not add people he does not “know personally”.

Typing on his Instagram, Monty said: “Putting on one’s best face … By the way it has been brought to my attention that there are fake Monty Don accounts out there.

“Ignore or report them. This is the only (public) one (and I never accept followers on the private account that I do not personally know).”

In response, his fans swiftly moved to help Monty report the fake accounts.

One said: “I’ve spent the last five minutes reporting and blocking spam.”

Another replied: “If Instagram can’t do a better job of cutting out spam, I am not sure it is worth your time posting Monty, there is a deluge of spam on here.”

A third commented: “The real accounts also have a blue tick next to their names which does help too. Love those shiny teeth.”

Monty often keeps his social media following up to date with his gardening progress and candid snaps of his three dogs.

Last month Monty addressed a fan who queried why his much-loved Yorkshire Terrier Patti is no longer seen “following” him around while filming Gardeners’ World.

The presenter shared it was due to an incident in lockdown that had terrified the poor pup from wanting to potter around behind him anymore while cameras rolled.

Twitter user @ChrisCord57 typed to Monty: “May I ask why Patti doesn’t follow you around during filming anymore? We only seem to see her at the end of GW now.” (sic)

Monty replied: “Because she hates the tripods because one fell on her during lockdown.

“That is why you always see me holding her. When the cameras are not here she is out with me all the time.”

Monty is a massive dog lover, and can often be seen on Gardener’s World in the company of his pet pooches.

The star shares three pet dogs with his wife Sarah, a golden retriever named Nell, another retriever named Ned and Patti.
