The seaside town of Largs was reeling in disbelief this morning as TV's Alan Cochrane performed a shock U-turn on his request for fish and chips.

Sunday : 'Demands for Cochrane to end confusion as he boasts that he is not bluffing about wanting fish and chips'
There were doubts this morning over the fate of Alan Cochrane's stomach, as the columnist performed his second U-turn in as many days on the question of whether he wants to have some fish and chips. Staff at the Blue Lagoon in Largs were left bemused as Cochrane announced that he DOES want the meal after all. "Yes, I would like fish and chips (but only if there's ketchup)", barked the crotchety newsman.
The Telegraph's Alan Cochrane was quick to blast Cochrane over his indecision. "This is farcical. On Friday we were told Alan wanted fish and chips but only if there was ketchup. On Saturday that changed to him wanting fish and chips but only if there was ketchup. And now on Sunday he's suddenly decided that he wants fish and chips but only if there's ketchup! Which is it? Will the real Alan Cochrane please stand up?"
