DELIA SMITH was caught appearing to get some shut eye during Norwich's nail-biting draw with Newcastle.
The Canaries owner watched as Newcastle went a man down but opened the scoring through a Callum Wilson penalty on the hour mark.
Norwich's pressure with a man extra finally proved too much as striker Teemu Pukki levelled on 79 minutes.
It left St James Park silent, and apparently quiet enough to leave 80-year-old Smith to take a break.
Unsurprisingly, it left Twitter in hysterics as one said: "Delia Smith falling asleep has been the highlight of this match."
Another said: "Delia Smith having a little nap there."
One added: "Norwich City owner Delia Smith isn’t enjoying the game vs Newcastle."
Another added: "Delia Smith falling asleep."
Defender Ciaran Clark’s red card for hauling down Pukki when in on goal just nine minutes in made it a mountain to climb for Eddie Howe’s side.
But Wilson’s penalt after Billy Gilmour’s handball set the Magpies on course for their first victory in over six months.
Tim Krul got a hand on Wilson’s spot kick but it went in off the bar and Newcastle’s season finally had lift-off – 55 days after the Saudi-led takeover.
And they were looking good until Martin Dubravka flapped a cross into the path of sub Dimitris Giannoulis, who crossed to Pukki – with the Finn lashing into the top corner.
A draw with 10 men for 80 minutes can hardly been seen as a bad result. But when you’re in the mire like Newcastle, it doesn’t help.
Beat Burnley on Saturday and there may just be hope for Howe’s side – otherwise it looks a long way back for the rock-bottom Mags.
