The mother-of-five also spoke candidly about their turbulent time together, as she branded her husband of 19 years ‘the best boss around.’
She wrote: ‘So it’s been 20 years since the ‘naked chef’ programme first hit our screens and what a ride it has been,
‘I have loved that we started this journey together and I got to share with you in all the highs and the lows of your career so far.’

Jools then added: ‘Words can never say how proud of you I am and how absolutely hard you have worked and not just for your self. Possibly the best boss around love you lots here’s to the next chapter xxx @jamieoliver.’
Jamie first hosted The Naked Chef on 14th April 1999, and the show went onto run for three series and three Christmas Specials.
The show was praised for its relaxed style in contrast to shows that had aired before, and each episode would revolve around a specific occasion or event, such as a hen party or babysitting.
Jamie was praised by viewers for his laid-back hosting style, and many credit the show with starting the wave of male television chefs that came in the ensuing years.
The cook has been married to Jools since 2000, and the couple have five children, Poppy Honey Rosie, 17, Daisy Boo Pamela, 15, Petal Blossom Rainbow, 10, Buddy Bear Maurice, eight and River Rocket Blue Dallas, two.
