Vegetarian Adrian Chiles' dinner snub

Share article:

Adrian Chiles is getting a lot less dinner invites now he's "almost vegan".

The 51-year-old TV presenter made a decision to stop eating meat for health reasons but as the steaks and chicken haven left his plate his friends have left him out of their restaurant plans.

In an interview with the new issue of Radio Times magazine, he revealed: "I've lost my love of going out to dinner a bit as I'm almost vegan and none of my friends are. I don't get invited out as much since I stopped eating meat - or maybe they just don't like me."

Chiles does love cooking at home for his pals but often he spends so much time preparing his dishes that he loses his appetite when it comes to dining.

He said: "What I really love is cooking for friends. I spend hours making something overly complicated and get incredibly stressed and then don't feel like eating. I sit exhausted at the end of the table, enjoying watching other people eat. Often I cook with my mum but that's a horrendous combination - we fight like nothing on earth. More like combat."

Chiles" love of cooking and eating inspired him to take part in BBC Two comedy show "I'll Get This" which sees five famous people enjoy a meal at a restaurant together and one of them has to pay depending on the outcome of several games.

Discussing how he fared on the programme, he said: "The show started off being a bit of fun, and then the fear of being landed with the bill took over and the alcohol started playing with our systems. At that point all hell might have broken loose if we'd not been careful."
