But when a woman in the audience of his show asked if he had put on weight Oliver, 36, ranted: “Are you from a tabloid? Thank you, for noticing, you bitch!” The incident follows several days of jibes on Twitter from Australians branding him a “hypocrite for being flabby with huge double chins”.

He wouldn’t last two minutes. In the morning he has to have three different smoothies – but I don’t think he’d cope with the smoothies we’d give him. They’d probably be purified testicles.”
