If your idea of cooking dinner consists of opening the Uber Eats app and waiting for a cyclist to bring a bag of McDonald’s to your door, TV chef Jamie Oliver might have the gig for you.
The 44-year-old multi-millionaire, dubbed “the Naked Chef”, took to social media with a call for takeaway lovers who are fed up with ordering in to apply for his new series.
“Guys I’m working on a new TV show and I’m looking for people who eat a lot of takeaways and want to stop relying on them and learn how to cook for themselves!!” Oliver wrote in a post on Instagram.

“If you know someone who loves food but doesn’t love cooking, hit the link in my bio for an application form, tag them blow, and let me know all about them!!”
The form – which you can find here – asks you to answer questions such as “What is your favourite food?” and “How would you rate your cooking?”
Fans already seem to be loving the idea, with the post on both Instagram and Facebook attracting hundreds of comments where users praised the concept and nominated their friends.
“Tag me so I don’t eat any more pizzas,” one person wrote on Instagram, with another commenting, “Can I nominate my husband?”
“Nice lad, has always struggled with his weight though. Loves a takeaway (or six!), but that’s enough about his Monday lunchtime routine. Definitely would benefit from your help J!” wrote another.
Cooking at home in Australia is on the decline, with a 2019 study conducted by Empirica Research finding that 43 per cent of Aussies don’t enjoy cooking at home.
“The idea of online food delivery has become more mainstream with more than half of those surveyed noting that they are ordering via food delivery apps more than they were five years ago, offering customers a more easy and convenient way to access the food that they want on-the-go,” Uber Eats regional general manager for Australia and New Zealand Jodie Auster said.
Unfortunately for Australians who are fond of Deliveroo, applicants must legally reside in the UK.
