Richard Fox is a celebrity chef. Look, here's a picture:

You surely recognise him. He's absolutely a celebrity. According to his Wikipedia page, he's friends with Neil Morrissey! He even had an ITV programme called Men Brewing Badly, which we all definitely remember! It was about beer! And also starred Neil Morrissey! So there will be no countenance on the fact - yes, fact - that Richard Fox is famous, and a chef, and we can move on with this article.

Anyway, the important thing is that celebrity chef Richard Fox will be outside of Morrisons from 11am to 4pm on Tuesday 22 November. Don't worry - this doesn't represent a meteoric fall from his, er, celebrity status into joining the ranks of the transients who often hang out in that area. Instead, he's going to have some sort of fancy stall set up where he'll be showing anyone who cares to watch how to make the most of their leftovers.

Did you know that we throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food in the United Kingdom every year, which is costing the average family with children £680 a year, and contributing enormously to the country’s carbon dioxide emissions? That bit was copy-and-pasted out of the council's press release, so it must be true.

Celebrity chef Richard Fox will educate us all on how to combat this terrible waste by holding question-and-answer sessions, live cooking demonstrations, and most exciting of all, a "Ready Steady Cook" challenge where he will be joined by Councillor Bassam Mahfouz. So, feel free to overenthusiastically cheer Bassam on, or bellow incoherently at him, depending on your political views.

Sounds like a fun, and educational, time! There's no confirmation of whether Neil Morrissey will actually be there, but we suppose it's theoretically possible that he might happen to be walking through Acton town centre and stop by to see his bestest celebrity chef pal, Richard Fox.

Update: It happened, you missed it. Here's some pictures of the event so you can viacariously experience the presence of definitely a celebrity chef Richard Fox:
