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

He was 62.

Gill revealed just weeks ago that he had been diagnosed with the “full English” of cancer.

He was diagnosed during the summer after noticing that he had lost weight, was having difficulties completing physical activities and suffering with a pain in his neck.

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.

Tomorrow’s Sunday Times magazine front page story focuses on Gill.
