Celebrity chef Rick Stein was spotted in Eastbourne recently.
The star posed for photographs with fans and chatted to passers in the town centre and seafront.
The 68-year-old was spotted walking in Terminus Road, Cornfield Road and along the promenade.
It is not known why he was visiting the town.
Rick, a restaurateur and television presenter, is the head chef and co-owner of Rick Stein at Bannisters at Mollymook and in New South Wales, Australia.
He also owns four restaurants in Padstow, a fish and chip shop in Falmouth, Cornwall, and has written and presented a number of cookery books and television programmes.
