AA GILL, THE well-known Sunday Times restaurant critic has died, the paper’s editor has announced.

He told the Sunday Times that he had plans to marry his partner of 23 years, Nicola Formby.

The couple have nine-year-old twins. Gill is also father to two adult children from a previous marriage to Amber Rudd, the UK’s home secretary.
