Bluenose food giant Glynn Purnell will be heading for Villa Park this autumn for his third annual Friday Night Kitchen.

The fundraising event takes place on October 7 in the Holte Suite and will also include X-Factor winner Sam Bailey and other celebrities.
She will join Michelin-starred Glynn on stage to assist with the cooking before performing for over 400 guests.
Tickets are now on sale for the event.
TV presenter Suzanne Virdee will host the evening alongside Heart West Midlands presenter Ed James.
The night will include on-stage guests discussing and cooking their favourite dishes with Glynn before the audience enjoy the dishes.

The one and only raffle prize on the night will give guests the chance to win a meal cooked at home by Glynn and his Purnell’s team for up to six people.
To round the evening off guests will then be treated to live music from The Subterraneans, resident band at the Jamhouse, and Heart FM DJ Russ Morris until 2am.
With over £100,000 raised across the last two years, Cure Leukaemia trustee Glynn is hoping to have raised £150,000 after Glynn Purnell’s Friday Night Kitchen this year.
He said: “I cannot wait to welcome Sam and other guests to my Friday Night Kitchen this October.
“I’m looking forward to hearing about her favourite food so I can think up some delicious recipes for everyone on the night.
