Lily Allen was certainly not the first girl to be taken to cookery lessons on her hen party but she was undoubtedly the first to have Gordon Ramsey as her teacher.


The bride-to-be posted a picture on her Twitter feed with the words 'He was brilliant. Had no idea, I am a very very lucky girl.' Her hens - a small group of girlfriends which included actress Jaime Winstone and T4 presenter Miquita Oliver, who will be one of Lily's bridesmaids, then headed to smart London eaterie The Savoy Grill at Claridge's hotel.

Lily was pictured wearing a tiara and veil but was otherwise composed, surprisingly so for a girl once renowned for her wild partying ways.

It's now just less than three weeks until Lily marries Sam Cooper in front of 100 friends and family at St James' Church in Cranham, Gloucestershire, followed by an English garden party reception for 300 people at their home near Stroud. The singer will be wearing a bespoke gown by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, which we cannot wait to see!
