The Hell’s Kitchen love-in continues on last night’s show, with Anthea Turner’s husband Grant Bovey revealing that he tried to impress chef Marco Pierre White by staying behind to do the washing up.
The kitchen wizard told Bovey he was the star of the first programme, cooking “every piece of fish ... perfectly”, and Bovey seemed keen to hang on to his status as teacher’s pet.
Five of the eight celebrities scuttled off for a rest after cooking — including Turner — but not Bovey.
“When service finished three of us stayed behind to clear up,” he said.
“I think there’s one golden rule in this kitchen which is don’t p*** off Marco and if you’re going to down tools and walk out at the end of service that’s one sure way to p*** him off.”
But Bovey’s efforts were ultimately in vain, as White delivered his verdict on the best performer of the night — Shameless actor Jody Latham.
The next show is at 9pm tonight on ITV1.
