FORMER TV chef and south Cumbria champion Clarissa Dickson Wright has died.
The star, aged 66, was best known as one of the culinary duo Two Fat Ladies, died at Edinburgh's Royal Infirmary on Saturday.
Higginsons of Grange tweeted: "We're so sorry to hear the sad news about Clarissa Dickson Wright. A good friend to us and an avid supporter of Cumbrian producers. Sad day."
Ms Dickson used to visit Lord Cavendish and attend the Holker Garden Festival.
Speaking a few years ago he said “One of my fondest memories was when Clarissa Dickson Wright came to visit.
“I was driving a quad bike with her sitting on the back, and although I’m not a small man, the weight distribution tipped us over backwards. She was a good sport and we had a good laugh about that.”
Her agents, Heather Holden-Brown and Elly James, said: "Loved dearly by her friends and many fans all over the world, Clarissa was utterly non-PC and fought for what she believed in, always, with no thought to her own personal cost.
"Her fun and laughter, extraordinary learning and intelligence, will be missed always, by so many of us."
