Jamie Oliver Was Offered a Role in The Hobbit

The British chef Jamie Oliver has revealed that he was offered the chance to star in The Hobbit movie.

Speaking to Kate Hudson on his new TV show with Jimmy Doherty, Jamie And Jimmy's Friday Night Feast - Oliver revealed the missed opportunity to play a role in the famous film shot in New Zealand.

Oliver said: “The worst thing that happened to me was that I got phoned up by the exec producer and asked 'Did I want to go and cook for Peter Jackson's birthday?' The big birthday,”explained Oliver.

"And if I did, they would fly me over and I could be a hobbit in the film. But I was working, I couldn't get out of it. I really wanted to do it, I would have got right into it as well, I would have taken the costume home and said 'Jools, let's make love!'."

Jamie And Jimmy's Friday Night Feast is set to launch on UK television on January 2nd.
