Linda Evans delighted as viewers name her queen of the kitchen

28 APRIL 2009
Former Dynasty star Linda Evans cheered and screamed on learning she'd triumphed on Hell's Kitchen - edging out hotly tipped comedian Ade Edmondson.

Showing how popular the actress has become through a combination of her dedication and non-starry ways, her celebrity contenders joined her in the jubilant confetti-filled celebrations.

In the final she impressed by efficiently killing an eel and preparing a lunch of a crab and shallot appetiser followed by salmon in an oriental sauce for star guest Raymond Blanc.

Clearly shocked by her win which came after millions of TV viewers gave her their vote Linda said: "I am just so glad that at 66 I was able to do this and be on television and win people over.

"It's important that women know they can have a long life in television," she added.

Sixteen days toiling away under fiery restaurant boss Marco Pierre White had only increased her enthusiasm for his personal style.

"I love (him)- he is a fascinating man," she enthused. "The thing about Marco is that he is not a mean-spirited man, he just wants the best out of you."
