Monty Don Age, biography
Monty Don first opened his eyes on July 8, 1955 in Iserlohn, West Germany. His real name is George Montagu Don and he is British because his family moved to Hampshire, England when Monty was a child.

Monty went on to study at Malvern College in Malvern. However, he failed his A-levels and worked on a building site and a pig farm by day while studying for re-exams at night school. He later returned to England, determined to attend Cambridge University out of “pure bloody mind”, and passed the entrance exams.
