Students from Cheltenham's Star Bistro at National Star College went on our TV screens to show off their talents last night.

The budding chefs won their regional heat on the new ITV series Food Glorious Food hosted by Loyd Grossman and Carol Vorderman.

The winner of the series will collect £20,000 and have their dish produced and sold by Marks & Spencer.

The Star Bistro team's Star Pimm's summer jelly won the favour of the judges which include Anne Harrison, Tom Parker Bowles and Stacie Stewart.

Students Georgina Ivins, 18, Rachel Janes, 20, Tristan Blick, 19, and former student Joe Cook will now prepare for the semi-finals in April.

The students, along with bistro and college staff watched the show last night at a celebration dinner at the Hotel du Vin.

Judge Stacie Stewart said the jelly was "absolute perfection". "It's all a beautiful taste of summer and the orange sauce is the taste of the show."

The recipe was created by the students and the bistro team and showcases local suppliers.

National Star College supports young people with disabilities and the Bistro, based at Ullenwood, is open to the public from Monday to Friday from 11am-4pm.
