Episode 5


In a half-hour cut-down of the original episode, Alan and his team come to the rescue of Asif Iqbal and his family.


Father of three Asif was born with no hearing whatsoever.  He wrote to the programme to tell us about his incredible wife Sabina and how much he admires her. She was also born with no hearing but she has never seen disability as a disadvantage and has received 19 awards for her voluntary charitable work, including Tesco Mum of the Year 2010. A mother like that would make any family exceptional, but Asif is an inspirational force too. He became the first deaf young Asian to be honoured with an MBE for services to deaf and disabled people.


Inspired by an invitation to Asif’s sister’s colourful wedding – the Love Your Garden team turns a boring lawn and crumbling patio into a Bollywood Dream Garden for this fun family to entertain in.
