Was HE the toxic ingredient? ALISON BOSHOFF on Jamie Oliver's 'arrogant' brother-in-law

ALISON BOSHOFF: Jamie Oliver has sold 40million books, never seems to be off our TV screens and is surely the most famous chef in the UK. But that was not enough to persuade diners to pay £4.50 for a garlic flatbread or £15.30 for a prawn linguine at his Jamie’s Italian chain. More than 1,000 staff are to lose their jobs, and dozens of suppliers will find themselves out of pocket – some to a possibly disastrous extent. Banks and creditors, including HSBC – which as recently as September last year agreed to lend the business more money, taking its loan to a reported £37million – will be left reeling. He lives with wife Jools (together in the middle image) and their five children in a £10 million house in Hampstead (top right) and is a workaholic, often putting in 15-hour days at his HQ in North London. He has also recently bought an enormous 16th century stately home with 70 acres in Essex for £6 million (pictured bottom right). In a painful twist, the spotlight now falls upon Paul Hunt (inset with his wife and left with Jamie), a flashy former City trader who happens to be Jamie’s brother-in-law. 

May's cabinet at war over No Deal: Andrea Leadsom says Britain must leave the EU on

Theresa May's Brexit deal was hanging by a thread last night as furious Tory MPs savaged her decision to open the door to a second referendum. In a dramatic gamble, the Prime Minister offered MPs a binding vote on a second EU poll – if they backed her withdrawal deal at the fourth attempt next month (pictured in Westminster yesterday). Boris Johnson, (inset) who voted for Mrs May's deal at the third attempt, led the attacks on her latest offer, saying: 'Now we are being asked to vote for a customs union and a second referendum. The Bill is directly against our manifesto – and I will not vote for it. We can and must do better – and deliver what the people voted for.' Former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab, who is lining up against Mr Johnson to succeed the PM, said he could not support legislation 'that would be the vehicle for a second referendum or customs union'.
