Firefighters have offered to give Coldplay star Chris Martin free safety lessons after his kitchen disasters.
In an edition of Channel 4’s Jamie and Jimmy’s Food Fight Club, hosted by Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty and screened last night, Martin’s wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, told how his bungled efforts to cook had twice resulted in 999 calls. She said: “He has twice cooked a meal and, this is not a joke, both times the fire brigade came. I swear on my life – both times.”
Now, London Fire Brigade is offering to talk to him and his family about how to avoid kitchen blazes – the city’s most common domestic fires.
The brigade said it targeted its home visits on people and places where there was a higher risk of fire, but it was also concerned about young professionals.
