BBC News Celebrity chef Keith Floyd has died following a heart attack, aged 65. He died at his partner's Dorset home on Monday, said his autobiography ghost-writer, James Steen. Floyd had been diagnosed with bowel cancer in June. I liked him so I was sorry to see this.. When I moved to the UK I saw one of his series (I forget which) and thought it was pretty good. I have at least one of his books at home as well. R.I.P.
