Winchester couple survive into third week of TV allotment challenge

THEY have escaped eviction from their allotment and made it through to week three.

Millions of viewers watched as Hampshire gardeners Eleanor Waterhouse and Kate Bennett impressed judges once again Tuesday as they put their growing skills to the test on national television.

The green-fingered duo made it through to the third round of BBC Two’s new programme The Big Allotment Challenge, gardening’s answer to The Great Sewing Bee and The Great British Bake Off.

Going head-to-head with 16 other gardeners, the two 63-year-olds from Winchester have had to dig up their best produce, made jams and curds and practiced their floristry skills using flowers, fruit and vegetable from their on-set allotment to escape being kicked off the show.

The programme, presented by Fern Britton started last week attracting an audience of more than 2.5m.

Each week the contestants face four challenges before judges choose one pair to leave the show.
