Her husband Jamie recently revealed he wouldn’t wish his ‘lonely’ job on anyone else - despite his £150million empire.
In an interview with Radio Times, the 42-year-old chef admitted he has felt ‘pretty miserable’ at times and says he feels blue once a year.
He said: ‘When you’re truly happy, I don’t think that you’re pushing yourself. But I’ve been pretty miserable. It isn’t nice. I don’t know if I’d prescribe my career to anyone else. I don’t say I have regrets, but it’s complex.’

He added: ‘It’s quite a lonely place. It still does get to me about once a year. I do wobble. I’m pretty tough, but I’m human.’
The father of five said his job – which he says is ‘to be at war with processed food and takeaways’ – can be overwhelming at times. Speaking to Radio Times, he said: ‘The public only see one third of what I actually do for a job’, adding: ‘The Press will beat the s**t out of me until they feel sorry for me. Then they’ll build me back up again.’
Oliver, who found fame through the television series The Naked Chef in 1999, recently released his 20th book – Five Ingredients: Quick and Easy Food. Two years ago he became the second British author, after JK Rowling, to sell more than £150million worth of books.
