THE son of celebrity chef and television personality Rachel Allen is free from prison after serving just four months of a seven month jail sentence.

Joshua Allen, 22, received the sentence in the Cork Circuit Criminal Court on July 1 last where he appealed a two month prison sentence imposed in Midleton District Court for possession of €280 worth of cocaine for personal use during the Covid lockdown in July 2020.

Judge Berkeley in sentencing Allen to a total of seven months said: “He was given every opportunity.
