Wossy's latest celeb in Southend filming date
7:42am Thursday 18th October 2012 in News
TV star Jonathan Ross became the latest in a long-line of showbiz stars to visit Southend yesterday.
Chat show king Wossy joined celebrity chef Jamie Oliver to film at Jamie’s cafe which has been set up for a new show.
There was one special onlooker watching filming yesterday, Jamie Oliver’s mum Sally, who he famously revealed on Twitter earlier in the year had conceived him on Southend Pier.
She said: “I took the chance while Jamie was filming here to take bit of a trip down memory lane. “My dad used to have a little boat that we used off southend and I can still remember the slot machines and the What the Butler Saw and the rides. All great fun and I still have relatives in Leigh.”
Jamie is filming his new show with pal Jimmy Doherty for Channel 4. Jamie and Jimmy’s Food Fight Club will be screened in December and feature other famous faces which have so far included Gary Barlow, Alan Carr and Gwyneth Paltrow.
