Feast of stars join Jamie Oliver for new Southend show

Echo: Feast of stars join Jamie Oliver for new Southend show Feast of stars join Jamie Oliver for new Southend show

CELEBRITY chef and Essex lad Jamie Oliver is back on TV on Friday with Friday Night Feast, filmed partly in Southend.

Shooting took place on the pier in September and featured a host of stars cooking alongside Jamie and his boyhood friend, Jimmy Doherty.

The world’s fastest man Usain Bolt, and Hollywood actress Sienna Miller visited the pier in late summer for a few cooking tips.

The sprinter even challenged Jamie to a chopping race – which Usain lost.

Echo:

Jamie said: “He went: ‘Dude, I just got to learn how to chop fast like a chef.’ Typical Usain – he wants to chop and he wants to chop fast. He’s naturally competitive, so he wasn't too pleased about that.”

Jamie and Jimmy teamed up previously for their Food Fight Club programme last year.

The new series sees the pair travelling around the country in a Ford Capri.

Echo:

The main thrust is about cooking dishes to impress friends and family at the weekend, from the perfect roast potatoes to delicious meals prepared inside a dustbin.

Did notice on a recent visit to the Pier that his "studio/cafe" is in need of a bit of tlc. Mind you, it now blends in nicely with the general state of decay on the pier.

With the pier only open some of the time it really doesn't matter, there's never been much at the end, which is good, as people don't go to the end for anything else than a good walk, the view back or the fishing, the poor state of a few shacks at he end actually deters the idiots from returning, job done.
