Jamie is back and he’s found a very unique way to mark turning 40. 

The anti-sugar campaigner was criticised for gaining weight in his late 30s but he’s back in shape again, two stone lighter, ahead of the release of his new cookery book, Everyday Superfood, €30. 

He’s sourced healthy, filling breakfasts, lunches and dinners — 30 of each — and even includes snacks like the 100-calorie salad. 

Packed full of healthy eating tips and calorie counts for each recipe too, this is a practical one stop shop for those looking to step up their eating habits. 

We’ve put it to the test — anyone for Sizzling Moroccan Prawns with Cous Cous and Rainbow Salad? It tastes just as good as it sounds.

To mark the milestone she’s releasing a coffee table tome at the end of the month. She’s called it Becoming (“symbolic of the journey,” she says by way of explanation). 

It’s a mix of essays on motherhood, modelling and life lessons, interspersed with 150 pics of her life through the lens.
