Jamie Oliver has been celebrating a lot recently. Recently he shared a gorgeous photo of his daughter, Daisy, to celebrate her 18th birthday and now he’s posted a photo to mark a career milestone.

Taking to Instagram the dad-of-five posted a brilliant black-and-white photo of himself to mark 22 years since The Naked Chef first aired on TV and it made us feel extremely nostalgic.

Taken in 1999, the snap shows a youthful Jamie with his signature long hair, baggy jeans and white trainers.
