Why is Charlie Dimmock missing?
Charlie joined the Garden Rescue team in 2017 and has since become a fan-favourite and one of the reasons many are drawn back to the show.
As Charlie was missing from the first few episodes of season 4 without explanation, fans were worried she’d been sacked!
But that is not the case.
The real reason for Charlie’s absence has yet to be explained. However, she has been taking time off throughout this season and replaced by a fellow female gardener…
Who is her replacement, Arit Anderson?
Arit Anderson is an award-winning designer, writer and TV presenter.
She is famous for her role presenting on BBC gardening series Gardeners’ World and writing for Gardeners World Magazine.
Arit’s start was in the fashion industry and then transferred her knack for style to the realm of gardening.
Fans aren’t happy with Arit…
Despite all her experience, it seems that Arit hasn’t quite cut it with fans of the show.
Having two gardeners share the presenting role has inevitably led to some comparisons, with many favouring Charlie Dimmock for her endless supply of enthusiasm and hands-on nature.
#gardenrescue What does Arit actually do? Charlie is far more hands on.

It'll be nice to see this new presenter do a bit of work for a change, instead of just chatting to the camera #gardenrescue

The main criticisms of Arit are that she is less hands-on than her predecessor and doesn’t accomplish as much throughout the team transformation.
#gardenrescue something that Charlie could accomplish by herself takes two people now.

When is Charlie back?
Charlie has been back as a presenter on Garden Rescue periodically throughout season 4.
But it would seem that episode 20 (Monday, June 3rd) was just a one-off and Charlie will be back again on Tuesday, June 4th for more garden renovations.
We will update this page with any more information about Charlie’s absences as they are released.
