The Wildcat Cafe in Fort William’s High Street had a surprise celebrity diner last week when Welsh singer and broadcaster, Cerys Matthews MBE dropped in for a bite to eat.

Wearing a large beanie hat and oversized glasses, the 50-year-old former front woman with Catatonia sat on one of the stools by the window with her companion.

Matthews later tweeted: ‘Great idea – thanks The Wildcat Fort William ‘Avocado-no’…haricot beans and edamame peas, chilli flakes and ace bread. Thank you for the failte’.

Matthews released her own cook book last month. ‘Where The Wild Cooks Go’ has been described as a ‘hugely-varied collection of her culinary learnings around the globe.’

And Matthews gave a shout-out to The Wildcat on her BBC 6 Music show broadcast on Sunday.

On its Facebook page, The Wildcat responded: ‘Thanks for the mention Cerys Matthews, and glad you enjoyed your visit to our wee cafe  and the beautiful Highlands.

‘We love your show and are so grateful that BBC 6 Music exists as an advert-free place for decent music, and the kind of things we might not otherwise hear. Keep up the fantastic work.’
