If you dug up Jamie Oliver’s cellar you’d probably expect to find dead dinner ladies and a box full of assorted body parts he and Ainsley had kept from their many sex parties. What you wouldn’t expect to find was just over a million pounds in sweet, sweet treasure. OR A DECENT FISH PIE RECIPE. OH, SNAP.
And yet, when excavating the basement of one of his new restaurants, currently being built in an old Midland bank in Manchester, the obese-tongued chef managed to find not only jewels and gold, but also Joy Division and New Order master tapes as well as a very reasonable collection of guns. Total value: £1.1m.
Unfortunately, he’s had to give it all back to the treasury, who will more than likely stick it all in an old Volvo which they’ll then sink off the Isle of Sheppey just to prove a point.
