Jason Flemyng cooks for X-Men cast

Jason Flemyng put his culinary skills to good use while filming X-Men

Jason Flemyng spent hours in the kitchen cooking up a feast for his X-Men: First Class castmates, Michael Fassbender has revealed.

Michael, who plays Magneto in the Matthew Vaughn film, told Shortlist that although he likes cooking, it was Jason - who plays villain Azazel - who really stood a chance of winning Celebrity MasterChef.

He said: "He's a great chef. He cooked this fantastic pork belly. He slow roasted it for 12 hours. He put it on at like four in the morning for us to eat at four in the afternoon. It was excellent."

The actor went on: "I was supposed to reciprocate but never did."

Michael also revealed that he once had a bit part in Holby City - but described the experience as "awful".

He said: "They were taking my spleen out and I fell asleep. I was lying on that bed for six hours. I remember waking up mid-way through the take and the director saying to the cameraman 'Oh, we'll have better guest actors in the next episode.' I thought that was awful. The conveyer belt-ness of it was pretty soul-destroying as it was, without hearing that from the director."

When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
