Alan Titchmarsh is to make his West End debut in the Wind In The Willows.

The green-fingered broadcaster will narrate the show, which will be run at the Vaudeville Theatre from November 26.

The production, created by the Royal Opera House, was handed an Olivier Award for the best entertainment show during an earlier run at London's Duchess Theatre.

The former Gardeners' World star said: "I am thrilled and delighted to be joining this tremendous production which celebrates my all-time favourite children's book. Poop poop."
