Celebrity chef and restaurateur Antonio Carluccio has died at the age of 80, his agent has said.
He was known for the Italian restaurant chain that carries his surname and for appearing on TV programmes, including the BBC hit Two Greedy Italians, alongside chef Gennaro Contaldo.
We are incredibly saddened by the news that Antonio Carluccio passed away today. He was a huge inspiration to us & his energy & sense of humour will be greatly missed. https://t.co/3Cuhd8aII9 pic.twitter.com/2W73Uk1Vp6
