Oliver and his wife have been together since they were 18, married for 22 years and have five children together.
Speaking about their relationship, he said: “We went to London with nothing but dreams and aspirations. Luckily, we were able to solidify our relationship before it all kicked off. Then we did it together. It was exciting.
“When I first started going out with Jools, she was like, ‘I’ll never be able to have kids’. She had polycystic ovaries. But here we are with five.”
The Olivers’ children are Poppy, Daisy, Petal, Buddy and River.
The chef added: “I haven’t done teenage boys yet but I found teenage girls very hard. I tried to be an on-point dad, I’d give myself nine out of 10 for effort.
“Then the minute they get to 13, you’re dumped. You’re outside looking in. All you want is a few hugs a day and to be appreciated but there’s a lot of chemistry going on.
“You never get the kid back after 13, they completely change. Just when you start to get them back, they’re off to university. So it’s like a bereavement.”
