British chef Jamie Oliver showed that he was preparing for the Easter weekend on Tuesday when he shared a picture of himself on Twitter dressed up as an Easter chicken. And it seems that the tousle-haired maestro donned the fancy dress just for the benefit of his fans. Jamie, 37, tweeted: "I've dressed up as a Easter Chicken just for your entertainment (sad but true," to which one fan tweeted back in delight, "That's not sad at all".

"Very Essex!" said one follower. "You are sooooo cute!" commented another. The caption went on to say: "check out my Easter cakes on FoodTube on YouTube check it out and subscribe if you haven't already big love #jamie". The Essex-born chef also released a video on his new cooking channel Food Tube on YouTube, showing viewers how to decorate cupcakes with homemade icing. Dressed in a bright yellow outfit, complete with hood and a light yellow circle on the front, Jamie cheerfully showed us how cupcake decorating is really done, before going into his home where his wife, ex-model Jules, and children, were waiting. Celebrity chef Jamie first cooked up a storm with his programme The Naked Chef before going on to launch his famous School Dinners campaign. More recently he is known for his super speedy cookbooks which promise delicious family meals, perfect for Easter, in record cooking time. For more time relaxing with your family and less time in the kitchen, try one of these delicious, healthy recipes for Easter:
