Waterstones spiced things up earlier in the week - by bringing celebrity chef Gino D'acampo to the store for a signing.
He paid a visit to the branch at intu on Tuesday, signing copies of his new book Healthy Italian For Less.
And he had quite the crowd to greet him upon arrival!
"He was very charming - chatted away in Italian to some Italian-speaking fans, shook hands with all the men, kissed the ladies, held at least one babt and accepted a drawing of a pizza from a little boy called Harry," said a store spokesman.
