MSC Check Out AWT

Date Posted: 01 Feb 2012

MSC Cruises have today announced that they have regrettably parted company with celebrity chef Anthony Warroll Thompson. Thompson was due to perform a series of culinary demonstrations on board MSC Splendida next month, but the cruise line have moved to replace him, more than likely after his recent affairs.

AWT recently admitted to 'needing help' after being arrested for a series of misdemeanors based around shop lifting from his local Tesco. Reports claim that he would purchase several boxes of champagne, then for whatever reason, try to leave without paying for small, random items, such as a block of cheese.

To ensure guests still can still enjoy a culinary class onboard their cruise, MSC Cruises have replaced AWT with another celebrity chef, the Michelin starred Paul Rankin, who will be joining the ship on Sunday 5th Feb.

Paul Rankin is one of the UK's most popular chefs, having won Northern Ireland's first Michelin Star in 1999. Since then he has appeared on the BBC's Great British Menu and Ready Steady Cook.
