Pull the plug.

Celebrity chefs and food writers called today for a ban on junk food advertising during children's TV programmes.

In an open letter to Tony Blair, more than 20 food writers and broadcasters said the Government should act.

Signatories to the letter include chefs and food writers such as Raymond Blanc, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Sophie Grigson, Marguerite Patten, Gary Rhodes and Rick Stein.

The letter comes after Education Secretary Ruth Kelly announced last month that junk food would be banned from school canteens and vending machines.
