Hell's Kitchen winner closes restaurant

Hell's Kitchen winner Terry Miller has been forced to close his Tyneside restaurant as a result of the credit crunch, it emerged today.

The Geordie chef, winner of the show in 2005, opened Rockafella in Newcastle using his £250,000 prize money.

However, Miller's daughter told the BBC that tough economic conditions had lead to the decision to close down the venture and concentrate on the family's catering business instead.

Miller won the show in 2005 after impressing team leader and chef Gary Rhodes.

Hell's Kitchen was originally launched in 2004 with Gordon Ramsay in charge. In 2007 Marco Pierre White took the hot seat.
