East Lancashire's newest heart throb and star of Netflix series, Emily In Paris, was spotted dining out in St Annes at the weekend.

Lucien Laviscount, from Read in the Ribble Valley, paid a visit to The Firepit in St Annes on Saturday evening with his family and friends.

The family were in town to celebrate a birthday, and in true style, the team at the Firepit delivered a chocolate fondant cake to the table complete with sparklers and a rendition of Happy Birthday.

Lancashire Telegraph: Lucien Laviscount took a trip to the Firepit in St Annes at the weekend. Here he is with manager, Dan

Manager Dan Carter said: "They were a humble party keeping themselves to themselves.

"They enjoyed plenty of beverages including Tequila, Sambuca and Baby Guinness shots.

"They also enjoyed spare ribs, king prawns and steaks.

"Luckily for us nobody recognised Lucien as he was slightly tucked away in the restaurant, this meant he could thoroughly enjoy his visit."

It's believed that Lucien had just travelled back to the UK from Paris early on Saturday before arriving in St Annes.

The former Waterloo Road actor is also being tipped to play the new Doctor Who, when current actor Jodie Whittaker departs later this year.

William Hill has the odds at 12/1, and in a recent interview, the 29-year-old said he would be 'thrilled' to play the Doctor.

Posting on their Facebook page, The Firepit, which also has restaurants in Blackburn and Rawtenstall said: "It wasn’t quite Emily in Paris but it was definitely Alfie in St Annes.

"We had the pleasure of serving the amazing Lucien Laviscount and his lovely family/friends last night.

"What a true gent. We can’t wait to see you again."
