Jamie Oliver's life 'turned upside down' as 'mega jails' planned close to £6m mansion | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) wants to build two “mega jails” just four miles from the chef’s £6 million home, it has been said. The television star and his family face having their lives “turned upside down” by the proposals.

If successful, the prison could hold as many as 3,430 male inmates on the site of a former RAF airbase at Wethersfield.

The 800-acre site would house Category B and Category C prisons.

The MoJ has now launched a consultation, which has seemingly already been met with stiff opposition.

Locals in the nearby village have criticised the plans, claiming it as being “almost the worst place you could find a prison”.

“It will turn life upside down for everyone, including him,” he stated.

“I doubt that he is going to be very happy about it.”

Alan continued: “It means there is going to be traffic chaos if the prisons happen, both during the construction period and when they are up and running.

“… It is also possible that his [Jamie’s] home is in the line of sight of the prisons as the site is on a 300ft high plateau so he may have to put up with looking at them.”

He claimed members of the SWAP group had talked to Jools about the plans.

He added: “Jamie will be aware as I am sure Jools will have mentioned it to him, but someone like him has got to be careful of his public profile.”

A spokesperson for the MoJ told the Telegraph: “We recognise residents are seeking clarity and while no decision has been made, we will continue to consult and update them as our prison-building plans develop.”
