The couple also revealed they are happy to give advice to anyone who wants to try gardening.

We re-roofed the shed and Jeff didn't swear once.

Speaking to Metro, they said: "We've grown our veg since 2007 when our daughter was three, we started it for her really but we soon got obsessed with it.

"Now it's part of our everyday life, but it's never felt more relevant or important than it does now."

They continued: "We'd advise everyone to give it a go, it's great for your emotional health, being outside or having your hands in the soil.

"There's something really positive in watching something you planted grow. Back garden, back yard, windowsills, pots, grow bags, raised beds - you can grow anywhere.

"And while we're no Alan Titmarsh (or Percy Thrower for those of you old enough to remember), people are welcome to tweet us if they've got any questions about starting off."

Zoe often shares updates on the allotments to her Twitter account.

Part of the reason for starting an allotment is because Jeff suffers with Crohn's disease and he was advised to stop eating processed food.

Jeff, who joined Emmerdale in 2000 and Zoe, who joined the soap the year after, married in 2003 and have two children, Violet and Stan.
