CELEBRITY chef Tony Singh could not wait to celebrate after receiving his MBE at Buckingham Palace.

Leith-born Singh, 45, headed with his family straight to London’s prestigious Savoy hotel – where for once, he did not have to cook.

Singh, who has worked with some of the country’s leading hotels, tweeted to his 13,800 followers that he was on “cloud nine” and showed them a photo of his medal still in its box.

He received the award from Prince Charles, for services to the food and drinks industry.
