"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.

However, the chef had to turn down the role because he was already working on other projects. He spoke about the opportunity while filming his new show Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feast.

Oliver may have lost touch
When Jamie Oliver announced his next project – trying to convince the poorer families in the U.K that food could still be wholesome and affordable – he forgot one thing: dumbing down by his standards is still an unattainable level for those living below the relative poverty line.
See, pricing your book, which is supposed to inspire cheap eats with maximum health potential, at £26 isn’t exactly wise. £26 represents a weekly food shop for many of Britain’s families on benefits. And what’s more, the kitchenalia and utensils listed in the book would make even the wealthier cook think twice.
Does a single mum of three kids living in Peterborough need a pestle and mortar, a griddle pan and three different types of grater? Not really. What about “cupboard essentials” like groundnut oil, organic yoghurt and polenta - costing £150 in all - do they need all that? Probably not.
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.
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 reckons the U.K is far stronger because of its immigrants.
According to Jamie Oliver, European immigrants living in the U.K have more steel about them than the natives. His comments, which are likely to anger a portion of right-leaning Brits, come before his new show, which is designed to get poor families eating better food.
Should I have said all this... out loud? Yes - Jamie Oliver
"British kids particularly, I have never seen anything so wet behind the ears!” he explained. "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?" he added to Good Housekeeping (via The Telegraph).

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."
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."

The multi-millionaire is angry at poor people for eating unhealthy, affordable food and watching TV instead of buying his recipes and Sainsbury's ready meals.
Jamie Oliver is a marmite-like guy, you either love him for trying to improve the diets of the nation's children and poorest people, or you hate him for ruining school dinners and generally being a bit smug about it all, with little or no knowledge of what it's actually like to be poor. Anyway, he's been inspiring/annoying people again by having a go at underprivileged people for having a poor diet, telling them there's plenty of alternatives to ready meals, like stale bread and cheap meat.
To be honest, Jamie has been getting a bit chubby lately
Oliver was speaking to the Radio Times to promote his upcoming series Jamie's Money Saving Meals, in which he plans on schooling people on how to make their most of their limited income to make food that is nutritional, cheap and actually tastes good. The doughy-faced chef was promoting the new series as well as discussing his confusion towards the eating and spending habits of the lower classes in society, commenting that many of the poorest people are counter-productive in their spending habits, forking out for a big TV and buying over-priced, nutrition-free food for tea.
