Multi-award-winning superstar chef Jamie Oliver will be at the centre of a programme for BBC Radio 5 Live over the Christmas period, it was announced today.
Tim Samuels who presents 5 Live's acclaimed Men's Hour programme will speak to a Jamie Oliver far removed from the cheeky chappy who has graced British kitchens for over a decade and whose books fly off the shelves.
Interviewed at a greasy spoon café in London's East End, away from the urbane and trendy that has become synonymous with the Oliver brand, Jamie candidly discusses with Tim Samuels what it's really like to be perceived as rich and famous; what life is like in the spotlight; and how he protects his family whilst exposing them to the scrutiny of the media.
Jamie also talks about how the work of the newly formed Jamie Oliver Foundation changes the lives of disadvantaged young people who live a million miles away from his postcode.
The Naked Chef Unwrapped will air on 30 December at 6.30pm on 5 Live.
Radio 5 Live Controller, Adrian Van Klaveren, said: "Jamie Oliver isn't just one of Britain's most famous chefs but is now one of the country's most famous people. This programme will uniquely get behind the image of the man and give listeners a proper understanding of his thoughts and feelings."
You can listen to Radio 5 Live via DAB radio, online at bbc.co.uk/5live, or via digital Freeview, Sky, Freesat, Virgin Media and 909 & 693AM.
