Disgraced chef Antony Worrall Thompson has raised further fears about his well-being after giving a rambling and erratic TV interview.
The 60-year-old star was recently cautioned for shoplifting cheese and wine from his local Tesco store.
Now, in a pre-recorded interview with chat show host Adrian Chiles, he has admitted he is undergoing counselling to try to find the cause of his behaviour.
On the That Sunday Night Show – to be screened on ITV tonight – he tells Chiles he blames the incidents on a series of childhood traumas including sexual abuse and being sent to boarding school at three.
Heh… I wondered when the somewhat tired and predictable ”my problem is in my traumatic upbringing…” blag would appear…
It’s not seemly to tell the truth these days…like, ”I did it because I enjoyed the buzz…it made me feel powerful and put meaning back into my empty life…”
kind of thing…
My mate sent me a joke almost immediately the story broke….
”Jamie Oliver can feed your family for a fiver at Sainsbury’s….
Worral Thompson can do it for fuck all at Tesco”
