Tom: I’m not com­fort­able with fame

Daily Record - - NEWS -

BY LUCY MAPSTONE CHEF Tom Ker­ridge has said he is not com­fort­able with fame and that he finds it un­usual when fans want to take pic­tures with him.

The TV pre­sen­ter said that be­ing fa­mous is “bizarre” but that he is glad to be known for his work in food.

Ker­ridge, 45, told The Big Is­sue mag­a­zine: “I’m not com­fort­able with fame.

“I find it weird that peo­ple want pho­tos with a fat bloke from Glouces­ter.

“To be fair, I grew up in Glouces­ter. There are lots of fat, bald blokes in Glouces­ter. Be­ing fa­mous is bizarre.”

He added: “But at least I’m known for cook­ing.

“There isn’t a ri­valry be­tween fans of chefs, peo­ple don’t come up to me and say, ‘I hate you, I like Rick Stein.’”
