MasterChef star Marcus Wareing opened up on how his dad lovingly sent him off to live his dreams. The 53-year-old TV presenter appeared on BBC's One Show, to chat to hosts Lauren Laverne and Jermaine Jenas about his new show.

He explained how he helped out with a French school in his new series, Simply Provence, as he toured France to experience some of the best recipes in the world. The chef, from Southport, went on to say that schools are close to his heart because that's where his career kicked off, while under the wing of his dad, Raymond Wareing.

Telling the tale of how his Michellin-star career began, Marcus said: "School meals is where I started with my father. It's one of the jobs that we used to deliver fruit and spuds to schools in the north west."

An image of Marcus with his dad appeared on screen. Raymond had his arm lovingly around his son, as Marcus said: "There's my dad, there. Unfortunately not with us anymore, sadly."

He added: "He was my rock. That man was the man who put me on a train in Liverpool, at the age of 18, told me to go to London and not come back."
