CHILDREN’S favourite Mr Bloom met fans yesterday during the final day of the Dundee Flower and Food Festival.
The TV gardener, played by actor and writer Ben Faulks, held a meet and greet on the third day of the horticultural bonanza at Camperdown Country Park.
Mr Bloom started out as a theatre show before Faulks was signed up the BBC children’s TV line-up in 2009.
His easygoing, can-do approach has established him as a firm favourite on the CBeebies channel, and he has also garnered guest appearances on other shows and numerous BAFTA nominations.
Thousands of food and flower enthusiasts flocked to Dundee over the weekend to enjoy the 30th annual edition of the ever-popular festival.
An array of top chefs from across Tayside held cookery demonstrations, while a variety of well known city tourist attractions had stalls at the show, including The McManus, Dundee Museum of Transport, the Frigate Unicorn and Dundee Science Centre.
