The BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show host has been championing Cartmel in the week in which the village’s L’Enclume has been voted Britain’s best restaurant.

The broadcaster has been making very clear he is a huge fan of the medieval village by hailing it a “thimble full of diamonds”.

He also raved about its numerous businesses and their produce, in particular the Cartmel Village Shop and its world-famous Sticky Toffee Pudding and hot pork pies.

The hot topic continued yesterday when a hamper full of Sticky Toffee Pudding, pork pies and toffee sauce was delivered to the breakfast show team live on air.

Jean Johns, owner of Cartmel Village Shop, said: “It’s wonderful to hear Chris champion Cartmel and all its great businesses and produce. “We’ve sent him a hamper full of Cartmel goodies.”
