Lynda cooks up a storm in Lyme Regis
ACTRESS Lynda Bellingham got a taste of the action on Lyme Regis lifeboat for a TV cookery series.
She stopped off at the lifeboat house to film for a new weekday series on ITV called My Tasty Travels.
The actress visited the town with Plymouth-based TV production company Two Four during Lifeboat Week earlier in the summer.
Now the series is being aired in September with the Lyme episode due over the coming weeks.
Crew member Mark Gage showed Lynda the finer points of the lifeboat and James Rice demonstrated how to put on the lifeboat crew gear.
Harbour master Grahame Forshaw gave Lynda a guided tour of the harbour aboard his launch.
The programme was due to end with Lynda cooking a meal for members of the crew on the beach by the Powerboat Club.
Lynda is well known for appearing in Oxo adverts on TV, but has also appeared in many TV programmes including Strictly Come Dancing and Loose Women.
