TOP TV chef and winner of reality show I'm a Celebrity..Get Me Out of Here!, Gino D'Acampo, has been signing copies of his book at the opening of a food warehouse.
The 'King of the Jungle' was at the opening of JJ Food Service in Five Arches Business Estate, Maidstone Road, Foots Cray, last Saturday.
The 67,000ft depot specialises in frozen and chilled goods.
Signing copies of his latest book The Italian Diet, the celebrity chef, who makes regular appearances on This Morning, said: "I love having the chance to meet all of my fans, that is what is so good about book signings - I get to meet people that buy the book and cook the recipes, so I get to see what they think of it.
"It is my third book so far, and I wrote it to show people that Italian food isn't all fattening with cream and cheese - it can actually be very different. I hope people enjoy it."
Gino won the ITV reality show in December last year.
He added: "Winning the show was amazing, and the support had been absolutely great.
"It was a fantastic experience, and I have been so grateful for that and to receive all the votes and be crowned king was brilliant."
Gino hit the headlines when he was charged with animal cruelty along with Hollyoaks actor Stuart Manning after cooking and eating a rat on TV. All the charges against them have now been dropped.
