The Mike Brewer Live Show: with Phil Vickery

Mike Brewer interviews This Morning's Phil Vickery

Mike Brewer interviews Phil Vickery, TV Chef and author, about his career, his first car, and the lessons he’s learnt from years of watching Wheeler Dealers.

Feeding the nation on ITV’s This Morning for over 20 years, Phil Vickery is the TV chef we all know and love. But he also loves his cars – and reveals his first car was his dad’s Austin Allegro. From a Morris Ital to a Bentley, high mileage British Leyland cars, and his love for Land Rover Defenders, Phil takes us on his own motoring journey.

Phil’s career started as a Commis Chef at the Burlington Hotel on Folkestone seafront where he worked his way up the kitchen ranks. On his journey he has taken in the very smart Michael’s Nook hotel in Grasmere, Cumbria, the Michelin starred Gravetye Manor in East Grinstead, and Ian McAndrew’s Michelin starred restaurant ‘74’ as Sous Chef.
