Has host Stephen Mulhern persuaded the queen of yellow and green cuisine to take part in his new primetime TV show?

ITV show In for a Penny has released a photograph of host Stephen Mulhern next to someone who they say is 'a Delia Smith lookalike'.

Wearing a green and yellow Norwich City scarf and sporting a haircut similar to the club's joint majority shareholder, the pair are pictured close to Norwich Cathedral ahead of the game show which will be aired on ITV on April 20.
