These screen heroes became real life heroes when they put their lives on the line.

It's impressive enough when ordinary civilians put themselves on the front line in a dangerous situation to rescue their friends, familiy and even people they don't know. But when celebrities do it, it completely changes the way people view them. And heroism among the elite is not as uncommon as you might think.

1. Jamie Oliver - Last week, the celebrity chef pursued a man on foot after he attempted to break into both his London home and a neighbour's, and ended up pinning him to the ground and holding him there until the police arrived on scene. The would-be burglar was described as 'aggressive', but Jamie wasn't about to give in when he had a wife and five children to defend.

Jamie Oliver Anticipates "A Kicking" By The Food And Drink Industry Over Sugar Tax

By Ed Biggs in Lifestyle / Showbiz on 23 October 2015

Jamie Oliver

The TV chef has been campaigning for a so-called "sugar tax" to be imposed on unhealthy drinks and foodstuffs.

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver says he now expects to receive a “kicking” from the food and drinks industry as he plans to increase the intensity of his campaign for a ‘sugar tax’ in Britain, as numerous reports indicate that the government has shelved such plans despite a report recommending it.

The 40 year old has been a vocal supporter of levies on sweetened and fizzy drinks, and said that he would be “hugely surprised and disappointed” if the Conservative government didn’t end up supporting the proposals.

"I'm annoyed that I said anything because I did bite for a few years and it felt quite good but I don't think it's very responsible of me to take the p*** again because I don't want his kids to get upset because I'm slagging off their dad," he told Australian news organisation AAP.

Public Outrage And Twitter Backlash Following Jamie Oliver's "Lazy Young Britons" Comment

By Victoria Pavlova in Lifestyle / Showbiz on 31 August 2013

Jamie Oliver

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has been sparking a lot of controversy lately, with his latest comment about “lazy” British workers sparking public outrage most recently. Oliver commented that his immigrant staff were more hard working, compared to their British counterparts and that his restaurants would be forced to close down if he relied solely on Britons.

Image caption The celebrity chef and healthy lifestyle campaigner had a foot-in-mouth moment.

According to the Daily Mail, Oliver, who started his career in his father’s Essex pub explained that a 80-to-100-hour work week was normal when he started out and chided young people these days for their lax work ethic. ‘British kids particularly, I have never seen anything so wet behind the ears,” he commented for the Mirror. “I have mummies phoning up for 23-year-olds saying to me, “My son is too tired.” On a 48-hour-week! Are you having a laugh?

Jamie Oliver's "New Poverty" Revelation - Low-Income Families Should Try Markets And Home Cooking

By Victoria Pavlova in Music / Festivals on 27 August 2013

Jamie Oliver

Oliver preaches markets and home cooking for those looking to eat healthy on a budget.

Jamie Oliver is at it again – and by it, we mean bemoaning the eating choices of poor families. While promoting his new series, the celebrity chef with a mission made some not-so-nice remarks about low-income families and what he refers to as “modern day poverty” – or, as he mentioned in another part of the promo, families, who choose to eat "chips and cheese out of Stryrofoam containers" while sitting in a room with a "massive f*****g TV".

Oliver claims that he has seen this kind of paradox, while spending time in poorer areas of the country. But far from just bemoaning what he sees as the trend, Oliver offered solutions. Markets! Local produce! Smaller shopping sizes! Home-cooked meals! The latter he will teach you how to prepare, of course, if you tune into his new show, Jamie’s Money Saving Meals.

"The fascinating thing for me is that seven times out of 10, the poorest families in this country choose the most expensive way to hydrate and feed their families,” Oliver says, via The Guardian. ”The ready meals, the convenience foods."

Jamie Oliver's Latest Gripe: Poor Families Wasting Money On Junk Food

By Jack de Aguilar in Movies / TV / Theatre on 27 August 2013

Jamie Oliver

Can Joliver convince poor families to change their ways? Or is he being a tad patronising?

Despite a recent study, which shows that some junk food might actually be – gram for gram – the cheapest way to provide nutrients as opposed to the expensive food prepared by TV cooks, Jamie Oliver is ‘on a mission’ to prove that families with low incomes are wasting money on the stuff.

"Some of the most inspirational food in the world comes from areas where people are financially challenged,” Britain’s cheeky TV food man explained to The Radio Times. "The flavour comes from a cheap cut of meat, or something that's slow-cooked, or an amazing texture's been made out of leftover stale bread."

Mary Berry Fries Gordon Ramsay For His Foul Mouthed Cookery TV

'The Great British Bake Off' judge disapproves of Ramsay's approach, says modern television is "ghastly" and describes Jamie Oliver as "bumptious."

Mary Berry, the Queen of cakes and nationally loved judge of BBC's The Great British Bake Off, has publically voiced her distaste towards not only fellow TV presenter and chef Gordon Ramsey, but much of modern television. Shows such as Ramsay's The F Word, Strictly Come Dancing and I'm A Celebrity... leave a nasty taste for the 78 year-old who condemns modern television entertainment as "violent, cruel and noisy."


Mary Berry Slammed Both Reality TV Shows And Other Cooking Programmes.

Speaking to the Radio Times to promote a new series of the baking contest, as reported by The Daily Mail, Berry disparages celebrity chef Ramsay with his notoriously filthy language and characteristically crude style. "I hate Gordon Ramsay's programmes: I don't know if he's been told it makes good television," states the comparatively soft-spoken baker who prefers to let candidates down gently even when it's clear they've made a huge baking blunder.

Jamie Oliver Finishes Reading His First Book - But What Was It?

Jamie Oliver, despite having written twenty cookery books, has never finished reading a book.. Until now. The TV chef announced he has finished Suzanne Collins' sequel to 'The Hunger Games', 'Catching Fire'.

British chef Jamie Oliver has announced he's finished his first book: Suzanne Collins' Catching Fire. The chef, who has written over twenty cookery books, has never previously completed an entire book before. He said in an interview his dyslexia has always prevented him from finishing a book.

Oliver has not gone down the traditional route of reading the trilogy of books in order. That would be far too conventional but has instead started with the second of the three. We'd like to presume the cook had listened to the first novel or at least seen the film to get the general gist.
