A villain from a TV soap does not usually come to mind as the most obvious role model for healthy eating. But Temple Primary near Manchester has welcomed Emmerdale's bad boy Aaron Livesy, played by Daniel Miller, to the school to promote its cookery book.

This is a collection of pupils' family recipes for curries, kebabs and other wholesome meals, as well as the occasional treat.

Mr Miller's brother, Paul, is a teacher at the school and he persuaded the actor to get involved. "He has come in to help out a couple of times before and when I mentioned the cook book he was keen to support it," said Paul.

"The idea is to encourage more children and families to do more cooking at home and to promote healthy eating."

It is available from Borders Bookstore, Manchester Fort Shopping Park, for #163;4.99.
