Celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson has been arrested for shoplifting cheese and wine at a supermarket, police have said.

The Ready Steady Cook star, 60, was cautioned by police after he was caught stealing from the Tesco store in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. The former I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! contestant, whose restaurant business has been hit by the recession, was caught while using a self-scanning till on Friday, 6 January.

According to the Sun, a camera had been set up after he was spotted by staff not paying for some low-value items on a total of five occasions. He was stopped by guards leaving the store in front of shocked shoppers, the Sun reports.

A Thames Valley police spokesman said: “Thames Valley police arrested a 60-year-old man from High Wycombe following a report of shoplifting offences in Tesco, Reading Road, Henley-on-Thames.

“The man has been issued with a formal caution for these offences.” A Tesco spokesman said: “It’s a matter for police.”
