She said there were about 10 people at his table and he was staying at The White Hart Hotel in Overton after going on a fishing trip on the River Test.

“He is a true legend,” said Rainy, adding: “He posted my photo on his personal Twitter account with 86k followers and already it’s up to 9,000 hits. He really was a lovely, wonderful man and a true legend.”
