Fiery Frenchman tamed by promotions girl he met while waiting for a plane

CELEBRITY chef Jean-Christophe Novelli is to get married for a third time - to a girl he met at Luton Airport.

The Frenchman first spotted 31-year-old promotions executive Michelle Kennedy as he waited for a flight and says he gave her his number in case she ever wanted a job.

She called three months later, and smitten Novelli, 43, popped the question last week, claiming it is the first time he has ever proposed.

He said: "Michelle is the first woman I have ever loved in this way.

"My first marriage happened because my girlfriend was pregnant. The second I just drifted into."

He told Hello! magazine: "We were working together and had become closer."

Michelle added: "It took about eight months to develop."
