RADIO presenter Rebecca Lee has made quite an impression on celeb chef Marco Pierre White.

While he's better known as a hot-head, he melted over a cup of tea.

The restaurateur visited the Q102 studios last week to chat with Aidan Cooney and it was left to Rebecca to pop on a brew for their famous guest.

"I had no idea who he was. He asked for a cup of tea with strict instructions which I threw together," she told the Diary.

Her cup of tea earned her huge praise from the man himself with him telling listeners that it was best cup of tea he had ever tasted.

Marco also sent her a signed copy of his new book to say thank you with a message reading: "To Rebecca, thanks for a great cup of tea, love Marco Pierre White."

Naturally everyone at the station has been asking her to make them a cuppa since but she says she'll be keeping her method a secret.

If her new nickname at the station - Mrs Doyle - wears thin, Rebecca can always try her hand in one of Marco's famous kitchens.
