"I've cooked a lot of things and lived a lot of years but I've never seen my food resemble a celebrity before.

"Before I served up I called over my wife and she clocked it straight away.

"We looked at it for a minute of two but we were both hungry so I ended up eating it.

"I know it's a bit silly but I've shown people and they say it's a dead ringer for Freddie.

"I'm a big fan. I never saw him live but I would have loved to.

"I just don't know what else to say. It was a nice surprise."
