Sir Paul McCartney is throwing his weight behind a new line of his late wife's food.
Sir Paul paid a visit to the factory manufacturing Linda's food range to sample some of the new products in development.
The musician dropped in to the Linda McCartney Foods factory in Fakenham, Norfolk, with their daughter, Mary.
The pair spent time in Linda's Kitchen, a test area within the factory, tasting some of the new meat-free dishes, including the Linda McCartney Mozzarella Quarter Pounder Burgers launching this month.
During the visit, they took time to create a few of their own vegetarian meals and toured the factory, which employs 223 people.
Sir Paul said: "We always look forward to returning to the Fakenham kitchen and trialling the new dishes and catching up with the development team.
"As a family we are delighted to see that Hain Celestial has remained loyal to Linda's original vision and values and continued to develop a brand that not only appeals to vegetarians but can also be part of a meat-reducing diet."
A committed vegetarian, Linda McCartney established her commercially successful food range in 1991. She lost her battle with cancer in 1998 aged 56.
