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.”

Do you believe Cumbria will be part of the northern powerhouse?

Of course it will. Any shift north is good

No. It's already clear we're not part of it

Only if we speak up and demand to be involved
