Culinary queen Delia Smith is planning her TV comeback - four years after telling fans she had retired.

The 65-year-old Norwich City Football Club majority shareholder has updated her 1971 book How To Cheat At Cooking and is set to return to the BBC for a series next spring.

It concentrates on making healthy family meals without the hassle and the show will be based on its recipes.

She said: “It's going to cut out time-consuming processes. We're short-cutting all the rules.

“Cheating has come on a lot and there's so much more available.”

Delia was last on our screens in 2002. She announced she had finished with TV the following year to concentrate on her interests in the Carrow Road club she bought a controlling stake in with her husband Michael Wynn-Jones in 1996, but kept on writing.

Agent Debbie Owen said: “Delia has put loads of time and effort into the football club.

“Recently her thoughts have been returning to her career, though, and she's delighted to be back writing books and making TV programmes again.”

BBC producers are set to meet Delia over the summer to finalise plans for the new series.
