Broadcaster Jo Whiley has said she likes to garden "unfettered" by wearing just a bra and shorts.

The DJ, whose Scent Garden is being unveiled at this year's Chelsea Flower Show, said tending her plants in shorts and a bra keeps her sane and "calms me when there's chaos in my head".

She told Radio Times magazine: "I would be lost without it. I wouldn't know what to do with myself."

Whiley (51) added: "Mentally it's so cathartic. When I know it's a gardening day, I wake up excited. Rain or shine makes no difference. I've had as many great gardening days in wellingtons and a mac as I've had really nice days in a bra and shorts."
