London - A celebrity chef has apologised after he was caught shoplifting from a supermarket.

Antony Worrall Thompson was caught stealing cheese and wine from a Tesco store in Henley-on-Thames, west of London.

In a statement posted on his website on Monday the 60-year-old said he was sorry "for all my recent stupid and irresponsible actions".

He said will seek treatment and apologised to Tesco staff. The Sun newspaper reports he stole cheese and wine.

Thames Valley police issued Worrall Thompson with a formal caution - a written rebuke for a crime.

Worrall Thompson will not face further charges but the caution can be mentioned in court if he re-offends.

Worrall Thompson appeared on daytime cookery show Ready Steady Cook.

      Didn't you know, theft is a terrible disease and a cry for help (but only if you're famouse).

      Gollum, spelling,please!

      @ lee.ferreira. So I spelt 1 word wrong. Sure I can understand when someone makes so many mistakes that it's difficult to understand what they mean but 1 word...seriously. Oh well I guess that typo makes my entire comment pointless. BTW after a comma one should put a space.

      Gollum, you should rather have said (but only if you're a mouse). But ja, comment ruined, you may as well go and eat worms.

      He stole some cheese - How dairy! He stole some cheese and wine... and that was just for starters! Security asked him to unpack his bag and asked him what he was going to make with the ingredients!

    Oh Anthony, you silly bugger. Why did you go do that? You are surely not short of money.

      Mr Squid - 2012-01-09 20:04

      Not short of money, but he is short.

    F**king Kleptomaniac!!!!

    If he hadn't got caught, would he still be sorry? Most of the time, people are only ever sorry, when they are caught. If he hadn't of got caught, would he have phoned Tesco when he got home with his loot, and said, "Hey folks, I shoplifted from you, I feel bad now, and I'm sorry"? Never, when he got home, he would opened that bottle of wine, & toasted the fact that he got away with it, but he didn't, so he's sorry, - makes you wonder how many times he's gotten away with it before.

    Something cheezee about this story

    Cleptomaniac. Should move to Greece, he could get a disability pension. A father of a girlfreind of mine used to be like this, always stole something small when he went shopping. He was extremely embarrassed when one day he was caught - and almost lost his job. Weird affliction, the oke never needed any of the stuff - it was just the challenge.

      Ok, I should have used a "k". Sorry, get over it.
