Simon Cowell Sue Perkins Jamie Oliver

Simon Cowell has said he believes the BBC made a mistake in letting the ‘Great British Bake Off’ move to Channel 4. The ‘X Factor’ boss recently signed a new three year deal to keep his talent shows on ITV, but says he does feel bad for the BBC and their situation.

Simon CowellSimon Cowell has some ideas for a ‘Bake Off’ replacement

“Personally I think it is a mistake. I just do,” he told The Sun. “I feel bad for the BBC, because they launched the format and it must be incredibly frustrating when you are in that position and you have got a huge hit but you can’t compete but I get the reasons why you can’t compete.”

Is Cheap For Jamie Oliver Cheap For Everyone? Austerity Cooking Proves Controversial


Jamie Oliver

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.

Step Up Brits! Immigrants Are Tougher, Says Jamie Oliver


Jamie Oliver Channel 4

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.

Jamie OliverShould 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).

Jamie Oliver Bemoans Chips & TV Lifestyle Of Today's Under-Classes


Jamie Oliver

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.

Jamie Oliver ITV
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.

Too Fat To Preach To Americans? Gordon Ramsay Lays Into Jamie Oliver


Gordon Ramsay Jamie Oliver

Gordon Ramsay’s never been one to mince his words and fellow chef Jamie Oliver has been on the receiving end of his sharp tongue, recently.

When Oliver found his Food Revolution show canned in the US after just two seasons, Ramsay was quick to wade in with his opinions on why he’d had the programme cancelled, accusing Jamie Oliver of being too overweight to be fronting a programme preaching to Americans about weight loss.

“You have to be very careful when you go across the pond and you want to dictate to Americans about healthy eating. If you’re not in that best shape yourself then you have to be very careful,” said Ramsay, according to The Sun. Not content with having a poke at Jamie’s flabby midriff (not literally, we hasten to add), he also accused the Naked Chef of fancying his wife Tana. “I think Jamie Oliver has a crush on my wife because every time he gets the chance to mention me he goes to my wife.” Very mature, Gordon, very mature! Almost as mature as your assertion that all you want to do for Christmas is give the guy “a good f***ing wash.”
