Tim was a guest on the show alongside hosts Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer this morning when he made a comment about “poor people”.
When the hosts asked him what he’d been up to, the chef replied: “Usual stuff, lots of teaching, working for a charity feeding game to poor people. Or people who are in need of food. I’ve been running around like a nutter.”
However, his remark did not go down well with some viewers, who labelled his remark “offensive” and “condescending”.
Tim has since taken to Twitter to apologise for his “bad choice of words” in response to a tweet from a viewer.
He tweeted: “I am sorry Clare. Just a bad choice of words. We are doing some great work to help those in need of support with useful, nutritional food.”
