Not content with being the one of the most successful chefs in Britain, Oliver wants a role on 'EastEnders' as a late-night snack purveyor.
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has revealed a desire to get into an acting sideline on his career, saying that he’d love to have a role in soap mainstay ‘EastEnders’ as a kebab shop owner.
The prospect of the Naked Chef trading affable Cockney-isms with the soap’s hardman Danny Dyer will probably thrill some more than others, but it seems that Oliver is rounding up support to get him the role. Speaking at the opening of his new London restaurant Barbecoa, he even admitted that he’d already thought up a good plotline to bring his character into Albert Square.

The music mogul says he has an idea for a new show involving ‘cakes and innuendos’.
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 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.”

Could Jamie Oliver be judging the ‘Bake Off’ if Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood decide to leave?
Jamie Oliver has addressed rumours he could be set to join the judging panel of the ‘Great British Bake Off’ if the line-up changes when the show moves to Channel 4. Just last week the celebrity chef had said he’d ‘love’ to judge the show, but now Oliver has admitted he’s got too much on his plate to take on the responsibility.

Adele has spoken out against those pressuring mothers to breastfeed.
According to The Sun, during her show in London Adele was asked by someone in the audience about “breastfeeding mummies”. “Do you know what? The pressure on us is f****** ridiculous and all those people who put pressure on us can go f*** yourselves. Right,” Adele said.

Jamie Oliver turned down a role in The Hobbit franchise - but why?
British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has revealed that he turned down a role in The Hobbit movies. Director Peter Jackson apparently offered to put Oliver in one of his Hobbit films in exchange for cooking at his birthday party.

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.
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).

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.

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.”
