Jamie Oliver says he felt threatened by the food industry when making his 2015 TV show Sugar Rush.
Oliver, who is also a campaigner for healthy eating was discussing his experiences with the food industry on Channel 4 show Who Made Britain Fat?
Talking to Dr Michael Mosley about his campaign to introduce a sugar tax in Britain, Oliver said: "I was tracked down by every [food industry] CEO in every way."
Oliver then went on to reveal that during this time he had been the victim of several break-ins which was something he had never experienced before. He also said that several of his online accounts were hacked.
The TV chef said: "The only time that has ever happened to me — let alone multiple times — was in that five-month period."
During his discussion with Mosley, Oliver also brought out a framed graph he has of child obesity rates which shows that poorer children have a far greater chance of being overweight.
Oliver said that he took the graph to every meeting he had with former prime minister David Cameron when lobbying for a sugar tax.
Mosley has fronted a number of shows for Channel 4 on the topics of healthy eating, weight-loss and obesity.
One of his previous shows, Lose a Stone in 21 Days, faced significant backlash as many argued that the diet he was promoting could be damaging, particularly to those who suffer from eating disorders.
Mosley's Fast 800 plan restricts the follower to just 800 calories per day and is based on his experiences after being diagnosed with type two diabetes.
Channel 4 defended Mosley and the show in a statement saying: "All episodes clearly state that a short-term 800-1000 calorie diet is only suitable for people whose BMI puts them in the overweight or obese categories and that it should be done with proper medical supervision."
