Presenter and gardener Alan Titchmarsh has been installed as the new Chancellor of the University of Winchester.
The presenter who's originally from Yorkshire has been in Hampshire since the 1980's.
He told ITV Meridian the role as Head of the university means he will be the "public face" of the institution and said it was a great honour to be selected.
Alan Titchmarsh MBE, is the patron of over 50 charities and organisations and of course a household name, but he says he has no intention of slowing down. He didn't go to university himself but is a champion of education and apprenticeships.
"I am hugely looking forward to working closely with the Vice-Chancellor, to make sure that the University continues to maintain its reputation and goes from strength-to-strength. It will be a challenging role but one that I shall relish.”
The broadcaster, who's also a novelist was officially welcomed into the role as Chancellor at a ceremony today, our reporter Andrew Pate was also there.
