RESTAURANT critic AA Gill has died after a short battle with cancer, it has been announced. He was 62.
Revealing his illness in an interview last month - diagnosed only recently after family concerns about his rapid weight loss - the writer said it prompted his successful proposal to Nicola Formby, his partner of nearly a quarter of a century.
In a nod to his career as a food writer, Gill referred to his diagnosis as a “full English” of cancers.
His death was confirmed by the Sunday Times, for whom he was a long-standing columnist.
