“I want to get as old as possible and to do that, you have to live a certain way. That's the rule of the game."

The celebrity chef spilled some of his healthy eating habits with the Daily Mail, explaining that he started adding seaweed to his meals.

"I thought seaweed was hippy, globetrotting stuff”, Jamie said: “But our ancestors ate seaweed.”

He added: “It has got a load of iodine and is the most nutritious vegetable in the world."
