Jamie Oliver’s Restaurant Chain Falls Into Administration, Could Close Soon
Looks like it hasn't been a good week for celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

News broke earlier this week that the 43-year-old's restaurant chain has collapsed into administration. 

According to a report in BBC News, 22 out of the 25 restaurants have already been closed, while the remaining three restaurants will continue their operation for a short term.

Oliver's world-famous restaurant, Fifteen Cornwall at Watergate Bay, which operates under a franchise, is reportedly unaffected.

As a result of the closure, about 1,300 staff working at these restaurants have lost their jobs.
 
“I’m devastated that our much-loved UK restaurants have gone into administration. I am deeply saddened by this outcome and would like to thank all of the people who have put their hearts and souls into this business over the years," Oliver said in a tweet.

Last year, the network was rescued from bankruptcy after Oliver injected £13mil (RM69.31 million) into it.

Oliver gained international fame following the release of his popular cooking series, 'The Naked Chef'.
