The show's longest running exhibitor and winner of six gold medals, Jeff Whiten, was forced to pull his entry after his sponsor, Brett Construction, pulled the plug.

However, the show was as star-studded as ever. Royals including the Queen and Price Charles were in attendance, alongside celebrities including Richard E Grant, Stephen Fry, Sienna Miller, James May, Joanna Lumley, Bill Nighy and Rod Stewart.
