TV chef Antonio Carluccio dies after fall at home

SAD news has come out of the Carluccio family in the last hour.

Famed Italian chef Antonio Carluccio has passed away at his home at the age of 80 after suffering a fall.

London-based Antonio's career spanned an epic 50 years, but he was best known for the BBC series Two Greedy Italians, which he hosted with fellow Italian chef Gennaro Contaldo.

He opened the much loved Carluccio's chain of restaurants, which started as a humble Italian food shop opened by Antonio and his wife in 1991 and soon expanded all over London.

He also acted as a mentor to Jamie Oliver.
