Hell's Kitchen prize for caterer
Hell's Kitchen winner Terry Miller
Miller beat nine other contestants to the 250,000 prize
Catering boss Terry Miller has beaten pub chef Kellie Cresswell to the 250,000 top prize in ITV reality show Hell's Kitchen.

Miller, 46, from Newcastle upon Tyne, was given the money in Monday's ITV1 final to start his own eatery.

Celebrity chefs Gary Rhodes and Jean Christophe Novelli trained 10 members of the public in the two-week series.

The show suffered an early slump in ratings and, unlike the first series, did not feature chef Gordon Ramsay.

As he savoured his win, Miller hugged his wife Linda and shouted: "I've done it, I've done it."

The budding chef had originally been mocked by Rhodes after he served up a dish made with Smash instant potato.

During the series diners at Hell's Kitchen were served 50kg of pig trotters, 170 quail eggs, 1,000 worth of mushrooms and 180kg of turbot.

Celebrity guests at Monday night's final included magician Paul Daniels, TV presenter Vanessa Feltz and actress Michelle Collins.
