For those who love nothing more than to get down to some serious weeding and seeding, Alan Titchmarsh will need no introduction. Thanks to hit shows like Ground Force and Gardeners World, the green-fingered celeb has become one of Britain's best-loved television personalities. But flower power isn't the only string Alan has to his bow. The proud Yorkshireman has also made his mark as a novelist, not to mention becoming something of a sex symbol. "You've given a lot of ladies a lot of pleasure," said the Queen when she presented him with an MBE in 1999.
