QUEUES of people came to The Book House in Thame on Friday to meet celebrity TV chef Rick Stein.

The independent shop completely sold out of its 100 or so copies of the popular cook’s book titled Rick Stein’s Spain and he personally signed each one.

The star was in the shop for around 45 minutes but managed to get the time to greet and speak to everybody who turned up.

Shop owner Brian Pattinson said: “It was terrific, everyone was very happy and Rick was charming. He signed and dedicated every book for everyone who came and posed for all of their photos. We would love to have him back again.”
