Miranda Hart’s mum has landed her own gardening TV series. Dee Hart Dyke will front Down the Garden Path with her famous daughter – best-known for her eponymous sitcom Miranda – narrating and making a cameo appearance on the show.
The More4 series will see Miranda’s gardening expert mum help people perfect their own gardens and visit celebrity homes to offer advice on how to spruce up the flowerbeds.
“I may not know a thing about how to garden but my mum is amazing,” Hart told the Sun. “She fills me with immense joy and laughter as she talks about her passion. The innuendos in gardening never seem to stop.”
But while comedy star Hart makes an appearance and provides the voiceover for the show, it’s her mother who will take centre stage, as her daughter was at pains to point out on Twitter earlier today:
Sorry Andy but it's my Mum fronting the new show. I narrate only and make a tiny cameo. She's amazing though! Hope you like. https://t.co/QIkDaXDAVb

The pair have appeared together on screen before in a Stand Up to Cancer special of Gogglebox alongside Patricia Hodge – Hart’s on-screen mother in Miranda.
Their three-part series is being made by King Bert Productions, Hart’s production company with friend David Walliams.
Its announcement comes as Hart prepares to make her stage musical debut as Miss Hannigan in the West End production of Annie, beginning with previews on 23rd May.
