Jamie Oliver Carries Olympic Torch Through Essex

July 8, 2012

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver participated in day 50 of the Olympic relay by carrying the torch through Newport, Essex in the UK. 

"I can't believe how much it's raining but it's great to be here in my old town and this is a real privilege," Oliver said. "I'll run past my old school and finish at the pub, where, to be honest, I'd like to be right now."
