Celebrity chef Derry Clarke is recovering from heart surgery in hospital as he prepares for Christmas without his late son.

Clarke underwent the double bypass surgery just days before the family are due to mark the anniversary of his son Andrew's tragic death.

The 56-year-old's wife Sallyanne told the Irish Sunday Mirror that Mr Clarke was recovering from the surgery and was up and about.

"It will take him a while to recover," she said.

"We'll have a quiet family mass on New Year's Eve and will visit Andrew's grave. We want to remember him."

Andrew died last New Year's Eve in Tallaght Hospital after being found at the family home.
