The People at Chesea 2013
The plants were not the only stars at this year's Chelsea flower Show. Here are a few of the familiar faces that we spotted whilst walking around the show.
Alongside the beautiful blooms were the stars of screen, stage, and gardening programmes.
 
Many were there because of their keen interest in gardens and gardening, some because they were attending a press call for naming a new plant or were being interviewed by the world’s media.
 
Whatever their reasons may have been for attending the greatest flower show on earth, they certainly added another touch of glamour to the occasion.
 
The pictures below show just a few that graced the grounds of the Royal Hospital during the show.
