  • Jamie Oliver lost his cool when a journalist told him he'd put on weight

    Jamie Oliver lost his cool when a journalist accused him of putting on weight, according to reports.

    The famous chef, who is currently in Australia to launch his Sydney restaurant and appear on Masterchef, apparently called a female reporter a ‘bitch’ after she pointed out that perhaps he should take his own advice when it comes to healthy eating.

    The Herald Sun quotes Oliver as saying: ‘I don’t know. I think the last time I had a filling in my teeth, which was quite recently, I was in good nick. But really, I am not really sure.

    ‘Are you from a tabloid? Thanks for noticing, you bitch.’

    Later on in the week, the 36-year-old was a little more considered with his response when asked if he led a healthy lifestyle.


    At another public appearance, he said: ‘I do my best… working in the food business is quite hard when someone is constantly asking you to try things. I eat fresh, I train twice a week.

    ‘I could definitely do better, but I am trying to do my best, like most people when they hit 30.’
