At a live ceremony this morning, Michelin unveiled the new stars in the Michelin Guide UK 2018. 

We've been snooping around on social media and we've gathered some of the best reactions to the news.

The Araki were newly awarded three Michelin stars and received a standing ovation from the crowd!

The first new one star went to Matt Worswick and the team at The Latymer at Pennyhill Park, Surrey and many of his friends flocked to congratulate him:



Former Roux Scholarship winner Mark Birchall's first solo venture Moor Hall was awarded a Michelin star having only opened a few months ago!

Phil Howard's Elystan Street also joined the one star club!

Everyone's thinking it...

And let's not forget the restaurants that retained stars!
