Celebrity chef Gino D'Acampo delighted fans in Maidenhead this afternoon when he stopped by for a book signing.
The TV personality spent more than an hour at The Italian Shop in Denmark Street signing copies of his book Italian Home Baking and posing for photos.
He chatted happily with fans, who queued around the shop and out of the door for the chance to meet him, greeting everyone with a cheeky hug or a kiss.
All 60 copies of the book sold out so the king of the jungle from I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here 2009 resorted to signing the shop's flyers.
Gino is a family friend of the shop's owners.
He thanked the people of Maidenhead for coming to see him.
"They're very cool," he said. "Lots of smiles and lots of beautiful girls."
