James O'Brien sends his sympathies to Jamie Oliver and the staff affected by the appointment of administrators to the celebrity chef's restaurant business.

Oliver said he was "devastated" and "deeply saddened" by the bitter pill. "And we did exactly that".

The Jamie Oliver Group, which includes the Jamie's Italian chain, appointed insolvency administrators from audit firm KMPG on Tuesday, according to a message posted on the Jamie's Italian website.

Alin Ciocan (28) was preparing to start his shift at London Victoria's branch of Jamie's Italian when he heard that it would not be opening and he had lost his job.

"Both Jamie's Italian restaurants and Jamie Oliver's Diner at Gatwick Airport will continue to trade in the short term while the joint administrators explore options for the site", KPMG added.

Oliver may be one of Britain's most popular chefs and famous names but Harrogate diners were ahead of the trend when it came to their verdict on his nationwide restaurant chain.

There are Jamie's Italian restaurants located in London, Birmingham, Brighton, Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Guildford, Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford and York.

As Daniels' attorney, Avenatti helped negotiate a $800K advance for the book "Full Disclosure", published last September. A person familiar with the matter who was not authorized to speak publicly confirmed her identity.

Fifteen Cornwall, which operates under a franchise, is also not involved.

Mr Oliver is known for his Naked Chef books and TV shows, broadcast in dozens of countries, after first being shown in the United Kingdom 20 years ago.

Mr Oliver has tried to revive his restaurant business for the past few years amid a tough consumer market, intense competition and rising costs.

He used his reputation to put pressure on politicians to combat growing child obesity problems by campaigning for healthier school meals.

Cau has disappeared, with its parent Gaucho being restructured, and other chains, including Prezzo and Carluccio's have also been forced into widespread outlet closures.

Global outlets, such as those in Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand, will continue to trade.

Following a couple years of serious financial difficulties, the restaurant empire of British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver may have reached the end of its road-the latest victim of an ongoing, partly Brexit-related shakeout in the U.K.'s casual dining sector.
