A FAMOUS face best known for his unrivalled appetite has paid a visit to Wrexham this week.

Adam Richman is recognised worldwide for being the star of the 'Man v. Food' show.

Over the years, the American presenter has taken on numerous incredible food-based challenges, wowing viewers along the way.

But, his latest stop has brought him to what is perhaps north Wales' most popular area at this moment in time; Wrexham.

Richman has been pictured at the likes of The Turf and Wrexham Lager's brewery as he takes a tour of the city.


After his visit, Wrexham Lager wrote: "Meet the newest member of our team, @AdamRichman AKA 𝐌𝐚𝐧 𝐕𝐒 𝐅𝐨𝐨𝐝 presenter (and all round great guy!).

"Okay, just kidding, maybe Adam working at the brewery is a challenge too far at the moment but what we can tell you is he has absolutely fallen in LOVE with Wrexham, our community, and Wrexham Lager.

"A massive thanks for visiting our brewery and we are sure we’ll catch you again soon.. ‘for a few Welsh scoops’ !"

Richman himself took to Twitter following the visit to say he had been left 'star struck' by meeting Turf owner Wayne Jones, who he described as a 'pure diamond'.

Commenting on the visit to Wrexham Lager, he added: "Truly, some of the most lovely, wonderful, knowledgeable and generous people on Earth."

Man v. Food premiered on December 3, 2008 on the Travel Channel.

The program was originally hosted by food enthusiast Richman, who, in each episode, explored the "big food" offerings of a different American city before facing off against a pre-existing eating challenge at a local restaurant.

Travel Channel revived the series in 2017, with Casey Webb replacing Richman as host.
