Katie Rushworth is Alan Titchmarsh new support presenter for Love Your Garden
Katie Rushworth, a student studying Craven College’s Foundation Degree in Garden Design has been selected to be a supporting presenter alongside Alan Titchmarsh on his ITV gardening programme ‘Love your Garden’.
Katie was amongst 90 selected to go to London for auditions earlier this year, she was then short-listed, invited to return for a further interview and successfully offered the job. Filming scheduled for the summer months has already started with two episodes completed and four to go. The first programme in the series is due to go out on ITV1 on 26 June at 8pm.

Katie Rushworth said:
“Making ‘Love Your Garden’ with Alan Titchmarsh is a really exciting, wonderful, amazing experience for me and I have been so pleased to relay some of that excitement of working with Alan on the show back to my friends on the course at Craven College. I got into gardening quite by chance and discovered I had a talent for it. Last year it was a Premier Award at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show with the College, this year’ Love Your Garden’ with Alan Titchmarsh – I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the final year of my Foundation Degree in Garden Design. As well as these highlights the course has been fantastic helping me to develop my design skills - just what I wanted for my new business The Queen of Spades.”
