Michelin-starred pub chef Tom Kerridge has been crowned one of four winners of BBC Two's Great British Menu after winning the main-course round.

He is now the first chef to cook at the banquet twice, as he also won the main-course round last year.

The country's best chefs have battled it out for two months to impress judges with four courses — a starter, fish course, main and dessert. Winners get their dish included on the menu at a People's Banquet in Leadenhall Market, City of London.

Kerridge, of Greene King tenancy the Hand & Flowers in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, impressed judges with his main dish of roast hog with salt-baked potatoes and apple sauce.

Other winners this year were Chris Fearon, of Deanes at Queens in Belfast, with his starter of season 'n' shake coronation chicken; Aktar Islam, of Lasan in Birmingham, who triumphed with a fish course entitled 'Influences from the Konkan Coast'; and Paul Ainsworth, of Paul Ainsworth at Num-ber 6 Restaurant in Pad-stow, Cornwall, got on to the menu with his 'Taste of the fairground dessert'.
