Jamie Oliver has admitted that some of his peers used to call him ‘Special Needs’ at school.

The celebrity chef has previously admitted that his education was ‘a struggle’ because teachers didn’t understand his dyslexia and has now set up his own school for children who are disaffected with mainstream education.

In an interview with Closer this week he admitted:

“I was in separate classes at school because of my dyslexia. It’s hard for me to read; I’ve never read a book from cover to cover.”

He added: “The kids sometimes used to shout “special needs!” at me, but in a jokey way, because I was a popular kid. I just accepted it and tried my hardest at the things I was good at. I used to sell sweets from my locker and extra sandwiches my mum had made for me!”

I enjoy a healthy way of cooking and like to grow my own food in my garden and Jamie has a lot of great advice for cooks that love organic cooking like me. Was a huge fan and never knew this about him but it proves how much harder he had to work to become great.
