Let’s be ‘avin a statue of you

A statue of celebrity cook Delia Smith and her husband should be built outside Norwich City’s stadium, according to the club’s chief executive.

Chief executive David McNally wants the artistic tribute at Carrow Road after the Canaries secured Premier League football with back-to-back promotions. The meteoric rise is due in no small part to the £12 million ploughed into the club by Delia and her husband Michael Wynn-Jones.

McNally said: “There should be statues of Delia and Michael at Carrow Road for their commitment.

“We’ve never had any money and we won’t know what to do with it. But it’s a great problem to have. The Premier League is the best league in the world and Norwich supporters deserve to be there.”

Delia twice stopped the club going into administration by bailing them out.
