Pictured: Heston Blumenthal films new show in Maidenhead

Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal visited Maidenhead town centre today as he filmed scenes for his new television programme.

He set up opposite Francesco's Restaurant, in King Street, and was asking people to select their favourite nostalgic British food in a game featuring eight dartboards.

The programme aims to bring back nostalgic British food that we have forgotten about.

Willing volunteers had to choose from a selection of traditional foods including shepherds pie, chicken nuggets and aim for their favourite.

Diane Henry, of Blackamoor Lane, teamed up with son Lawrence,19, and Libby Thomassen, 19, to take part.

"It was really fun," said the 49-year-old. "He was really nice."

The creative chef owns The Fat Duck restaurant in Bray which has been awarded three Michelin stars.

He also owns The Crown and the Hinds Head - both in Bray.

The new show will be broadcast on Channel 4 at the end of this year.
