With Norwich City promoted to the Premier League and the new season fast approaching, just how optimistic is joint majority shareholder Delia Smith feeling about the club’s prospects?

“I’m always optimistic and I’m always full of hope,” she said at an event on Tuesday evening to unveil a set of new paintings at Yellows Bar at Carrow Road.

"That’s all - I don’t know anything, and I don’t make predictions and I think football has a funny way of going in all kinds of directions, so we’re just full of hope and we’re doing all we can.”

Her comments came on Norfolk Day, as the county celebrated its illustrious heritage and beauty.

Setting Norwich City aside, Delia was asked what is her favourite thing about Norfolk?
