BBC cookery duo The Hairy Bikers feast their eyes on HMS Illustrious during filming for their latest series.

David Myers and Simon King appeared on TV screens yesterday afternoon in an episode about British food at times of war.

They looked at the type of food sailors eat onboard Portsmouth-based Lusty, before contrasting the modern fare with the grub whichwas served up aboard Nelson’s HMS Victory in the early 19th century.

They then cooked a meal aboard Victory of a rabbit stew main and carrot cake for desert.
