Alan Titchmarsh clutches sobbing mum of seriously ill child as Love Your Garden takes heart-wrenching turn | The Sun

ALAN Titchmarsh was left holding the sobbing mum of a seriously ill child in a heart-wrenching scene on Love Your Garden.

The ITV host was in Kent transforming a family's backgarden into a "paradise" that would be accessible for a young disabled child.

Isla, five, had her first seizure when she was four months old.

Mum Rachel noticed her twitching after a bath and rushed her to hospital where she was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, otherwise known as catastrophic epilepsy.

Ten months later Isla had an even more severe seizure which damaged her brain, leaving her blind and unable to talk or walk.

Because her condition is so severe the family has to spend a lot of time at home, which makes the garden space so important to them.

During Tuesday's episode, Alan gave the backyard a huge makeover, decking it out with a wheelchair-friendly walkway, pizza oven, play area, and two water features.

And seeing the transformation made Rachel burst into tears, leaving Alan clutching the sobbing mum.

Through tears she said: "Oh god it's amazing. It's just more than I could ever have dreamed of. It's absolutely everything… thank you."

The emotional gardening expert could only respond: "You're so, so welcome."
