10 will screen a special Jamie Oliver: The Naked Chef Bares All in which the celeb chef speaks to UK presenter Davina McCall about his career.
“Wow, 20 years. So much has happened in that time. Davina is a brave woman to come and get a taste of life with five kids in the Oliver household! But it’s been a pleasure to welcome her in and show her what my world is really like, at home and work.
“I hope everyone enjoys looking back with me at the past two decades, remembering the amazing times and some tough times… not to mention a few dodgy haircuts along the way.”
After being talent-spotted 20 years ago while working at The River Café in London, Jamie Oliver soon became the seminal Brit-pop chef and went on to have a huge impact on not only the culinary landscape of the UK, but the entire world.
From his no fuss, rustic cookbooks to his campaigns for fresh and nutritious food in schools, his colossal successes to his ever so public failures, the father of five and his wife of 19 years, Jools, chat to British broadcaster and presenter Davina McCall about what has gone right – and wrong – in his rollercoaster career.
This hour long special that made headlines in the UK doesn’t have a recipe in sight but without doubt a must see.
In an emotional and confronting moment, Jamie goes into detail about his defunct UK restaurant chain, revealing the devastation and responsibility felt for those affected by the business collapsing. The celebrated chef fights back tears as he visits the empty and deserted site of his first Fifteen restaurant in London.
