Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has clawed back £2.4m from the collapse of his Italian restaurant empire, company filings reveal, as suppliers to the chain are forced to swallow tens of millions of pounds worth of losses.

Documents published by Interpath as the administration process wraps up show that Mr Oliver’s holding company received a further £580,000 payment in the period between last November and this month. This takes the total which has been paid out to Jamie Oliver Holdings, a business majority owned by Mr Oliver, to £2.4m.

Interpath said it was a “significant shortfall” to the amount that had been owed to Mr Oliver, who spent £25m trying to save the Italian chain in 2019.
