Simon thrilled with Liverpool FC victory

Simon has also had another reason to celebrate this week, as his beloved Liverpool FC won the Premier League. This is the first time the club has won in 30 years and Simon is ecstatic.

On his Twitter account, Simon said: “Every morning I’ve done coffee and tonight I’m going to do beer.”

In the background Liverpool FC’s anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone played and Simon happily pointed to the club’s logo on his T-shirt.

The chef said: “I’ve had this sitting in my house since March, fearing it might be bad luck.

“We’ve done it. Liverpool are champions. Thank you to Liverpool Football Club for an amazing season. It’s not over yet. Liverpool champions, goodnight.”
