Jamie Oliver's Twitter account has been hacked, with the chef posting a number of diet adverts claiming people could lose 22lbs of fat in a month.

The celebrity chef, who hit headlines recently after praising Ukip, quickly deleted the tweets, but not before Twitter users had fun with the hack.

Others were even crueller saying Jamie Oliver had "taken those fat jibes to heart." His rival Gordon Ramsey blasted the chef for being tubby in December, saying the school dinners tsar Oliver is too fat to tell Americans to eat healthily and that he needs “a good wash”.

Jamie Oliver later apologised for the hack and said he was looking into it.

The chef was last in the news in May when he praised Ukip for "stirring it up."

The Naked Chef said he was "disillusioned" with David Cameron's government because of a lack of support for his healthy eating crusade.

Pointing to the death of Margaret Thatcher and Ukip's performance in the local elections, he told the Sunday Times: "With Thatcher dying and seeing how we reacted to her death and then how Ukip did, I think it is part of the same stuff.

“I think the public reacts to clarity and single-mindedness.

“I know I should be careful what I say but I do believe politics has got more squashed in the middle and samey. What I love is that Ukip are stirring it up.
