‘Standing with you’ Jamie Oliver praised for Eton Mess protest outside No 10 amid backlash | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Jamie Oliver, 46, has received a wave of support after he led a protest outside Downing Street over the government’s U-turn on its anti-obesity strategy. The crowd of around 100 people were demanding a ban on multibuy and Buy-One-Get-One-Free deals on unhealthy foods.

Friday’s demonstration saw the celebrity chef carrying a giant Eton Mess which he said was a reference to the “privilege and mess that is our British government”.

Following the protest, Jamie took to Instagram to thank those who joined him.

Sharing a picture of the demonstration, the chef penned in view of his nine million followers: “A massive thank you to everyone that came to Number 10 today.  

“It was crazy, but we did what we needed to do, to officially hold the government to account on their child health U-turn.

“I was touched and inspired by how many of you came from far away to support us…we shall push on.”

In a follow-up video, Jamie expressed how grateful he was once again.

Speaking directly to the camera, he said: “It was a busy day, it was raining, and there were so many amazing people that came from all over the country, from all backgrounds. There were teachers, professionals that work on the frontline, kids, students, I was so grateful so thank you so much if you came.

“Hopefully we did the cause proud.”

And Paul penned: “Thank you Jamie for all your hard work for the children of Britain even if the government and Boris don’t give a dam.”

Nevertheless, some people have criticised the protest as “tone deaf” amid the current cost of living crisis.

James commented: “Just a thought, why don’t you push the government to make healthy options more affordable?  

“To some people right now they are buying whatever they can afford and in most cases that will be unhealthy options. Taking those options away at this moment in time will only harm people more.”

Twitter user Nate also fumed: “I see Jamie Oliver is once again attacking working class families by pretending to care about the food they eat.  

“How about instead of scrapping money saving deals on food, we make healthy food cheaper? We help the cost of living? We give better access to child care?”

And Ash added: “Jamie Oliver is becoming increasingly tone deaf, and maybe HE is the one that needs an Eton mess pudding in his face.”

Jamie was asked at the protest whether his campaign was out of touch at a time where families are struggling to put food on the table.

He said: “This whole strategy was designed by the government and has been researched by the government proving that this particular mechanic [two-for-one deals on junk food] makes people spend more of their income and waste more….

“We want to put child health first, the strategy was looking world class and now it doesn’t.” 

‘The first crack’ Brian McFadden cheated on Kerry Katona with a stripper at his stag do  | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

“I was very young when I met her and no one ever loved me before. So when Kerry came along and wanted me, that gap was filled and I felt good simply because I had someone to share everything with,” he told the Independent in 2007.

“I never stopped to think, ‘You really should get to know this person before you have kids, think of marrying or settle down.’

“So then, when we had the first baby, bought a house, spent time together and Westlife became the same thing over and over, I woke up one morning and realised, ‘This is not what I want to do with my life, I don’t see myself being with this woman in 20 years, she’s not who I’m meant to be with, we don’t have anything in common.'”

He also admitted he had been unfaithful during his stag do, with a stripper.

Minnie Driver has addressed crossing paths with her ex-partner Matt Damon once more, years after their relationship very publicly ended. The famous actress explained how the pair “weren’t friends” in an insightful interview with podcast host Elizabeth Day. 

Minnie, 52, had a whirlwind romance with her Good Will Hunting co-star Matt, 51, between 1997 and 1998.

She also referenced Minnie calling Matt out after his somewhat controversial remarks about the #MeToo movement. 

Elizabeth then went on to ask if Minnie was still friends with the star, to which she replied: “I wouldn’t say we’re friends.

“We don’t see each other and hang out, but I’ve seen him around in the last few years and it’s actually been really nice. We had a couple of chats pre-Covid on the beach near where I live. 

“We’re not friends, but I feel an enormous amount of love for him because we shared this inflection point,” she continued. “Well, it was an inflection point for me.

“I think it’s ok to call people out if you’re willing to stand by what you believe. I don’t think you should call people out just to get attention and I also think you can move on from that and grow and learn and I think about him in a very friendly way now.”

She went on to discuss her memoir Managing Expectations, which arrived in bookstores earlier this month. 

Since then, the pair have both dated a number of high-profile actors, but both now appear to be settled in their respective relationships.

Minnie never married, but has been involved with filmmaker Addison O’Dea since 2019 and has a son Henry, 13, from a prior relationship.

Matt got married to wife Luciana Barroso in 2005, who he met filming Stuck on You in Miami in April 2003.

The couple share three daughters: Isabella Damon, 15, Gia Damon,13 and Stella Damon, 10. 

Luciana also has a daughter named Alexia Barroso, 23, from a previous marriage, who Matt considers to be his own.

Why Ray Romano’s Future on Made for Love Is Unclear

We aren’t made for a world without Ray Romano on Made for Love.

During the penultimate episode of season two of the HBO Max science fiction series, viewers watched as Herbert (Romano), who had stopped his cancer treatment, passed away while camping with daughter Hazel (Cristin Milioti). Well, the artificially intelligent version of Hazel who had taken over the real Hazel’s body.

This is important to mention, as, when Hazel reclaimed control of her body from Other Hazel, she learned that Herbert’s consciousness was also stored at Gogol. So, we couldn’t help but wonder, Could we get an A.I. version of Herbert or Other Herbert in season three?

For answers, we turned to Milioti, who told E! News, “I would say stay tuned to find out? You can put that question mark on there too, because it’s a question.”

While the Made for Love star didn’t have a concrete update to share, she did note that the status of Herbert’s consciousness does “definitely open up a world of both exciting and disturbing possibilities.”
