Jamie Oliver came under fire from his mother for putting his baby on the tiled floor to take a picture.

On Thursday, the father-of-five posted a picture of River Rocket lying on the ground to his Instagram account.

Sally Oliver, his mother, was quick to point out that the floor is not a suitable place for a baby.

She wrote: "This adorable child! He looks so like you as a baby! But please get him off that hard floor now."

Others praised Mrs Oliver for giving her son parenting advice.

One wrote: "Couldn’t agree more with Sally Oliver".

Another said: "Listen to ya mum Mr O".

A commentator found the rebuke funny, writing: "Haha...I love that your mom busted you!!! Go Granny!!!"

One man stepped in to defend the celebrity chef, and his mother said she was only teasing when she told him off.

She wrote: "You’re quite right, the floor is very clean and River is very well cared for, I was only teasing Jamie."
