He catapulted to fame in 1999 at the age of 24 when he was offered his own TV show, The Naked Chef, on the back of his stint working at The River cafe in London. 

However, Jamie has had a turbulent past year following 22 of his Jamie’s Italian restaurants close in May 2019. 

Administrators recently revealed that much of the £80million-plus owed by the collapsed Italian chain, launched by the chef in 2008, will probably never be paid back to creditors. This resulted in as many as 1,000 job losses.  

Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On airs on Monday March 23, at 5:30pm on Channel 4.
