Jamie Oliver chased a man down the street after he attempted to burgle the celebrity chef’s house in north London.

According to witnesses, the chef pinned the man down while waiting for police to arrive last Tuesday evening.

It’s understood the man had attempted to break into other houses on the street where Oliver, his wife and five children were all home at the time.

The 43-year old confirmed to the BBC the incident had taken place, and looked shaken when recalling the event.

Asked on Monday about the ordeal, Oliver was reluctant to comment in detail but told the BBC: “It’s not a situation you want to get involved with, it was what it was and it ended OK.”

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police told BBC News: “Police were called to reports of an aggressive male attempting to gain entry to residential addresses in N6.

“The male was apprehended by members of the public and was subsequently detained by police.

“He was taken to a north London police station and was subsequently released with no further action.”

It’s not known why the man was released, but press reports suggested it could be down to a lack of evidence or the suspect having mental health problems.

A neighbour The Mirror: “It was just a brave, selfless thing to do… everyone is really thankful for his quick thinking and courage.”
