From 70s retro dishes to diets, takeaways and ready meals, TV's tetchiest celebrities unleash their fury in The Grumpy Guide to Food.

Everyone seems obsessed about what they're eating - whether they are worried about the airmiles the food has travelled or they're inspired to grow it themselves. Our TV diet has been marinated in celebrity chefs and we've gone from powdered egg to super foods including pomegranates and goji berries.
