Marco Pierre White Jr’s Son APOLOGISES To Matt Preston

You may remember seeing Marco Pierre White (MPW) And Matt Preston working together on Masterchef.

Now, you may have noticed MPW featuring on the rival network to work on Hell’s Kitchen.

It’s all because Matt Preston spoke out about Marco Pierre White's son, calling him a London trust fund baby, a 'Trustifarian'.

We spoke to Marco Pierre White Jr to get his take on the whole drama.

“I mean, the way he called me a trust fund baby, the whole 'London’ thing I thought was very out of order because he’s never met me. Also that tattoos on my face…"

“Oh, he said that people with tattoos on their face, they’re always going to be bad boys.” Jackie said.

“I mean for someone who’s never met me, to comment something that I thought was quite disgusting, personally, I shouldn’t have said what I said, I was angry at the time. So I deleted them.”

“I mean, i don’t have any problems with him, I shouldn’t have said what I said, I’m happy that I’ve now got this opportunity to apologise on air, to the family and him. I shouldn’t have said what I said, I think it’s disgraceful what I said. I haven’t spoken to my parents about it but I know they’d be proud of me."

Kyle and Jackie O then commended him for his approach to the situation.

“If someone said that about me, I’d accept their apology, I don’t know if he will, but it’s the best I can do, to apologise on air, I can’t do much because I’ve never met the guy, it’s not like I can fly over and go and say I’m sorry.”
