Jamie Oliver's kids thinks their dad is a boring moaner – and that mum, Jools, is a better cook!

It's OK, Jamie, we love you!

The dad-of-four said: "I keep telling them, 'Hey kids, your dad is cool, honestly. Look at me, look at me. Look I have skinny jeans on, retro Nikes'.

"But my kids think their dad is not only boring, but repetitive and moany.

"They don't understand what all the fuss is about. Even when I cook something sometimes they are like, 'It is not as good as mum's'."

During a radio interview, Jamie, 39, added: "With my two oldest girls I am patiently waiting for my moment of glory, but I haven't had it yet.

"I am functional - I fix shelves, plugs and their electrical goods. Other than that and general security I have no use on the planet."

Fortunately, the celebrity chef does have one fan in the family: his four-year-old son, Buddy.

"He thinks I'm brilliant," said Jamie. Which is exactly what sons are for: hero worship!

In other news, Jamie has announced he's about to launch a new YouTube channel with the slightly unsavoury name of Boob Tube – featuring tutorials for mums and dads about how to prepare homemade baby foods.

Following the success of FoodTube and DrinksTube, Jamie said he wants to teach parents how to make healthy foods for their tots such as plum and apple puree, teething biscuits, and 'baby Bolognese.'

In an interview with The Drum, Jamie said that despite splashing out £4 million a year on his YouTube channel, he's still experimenting with different shows, concepts and partnerships.
