TV Jamie wishes wife a merry Car-ristmas

TV chef Jamie Oliver has cooked up the perfect ingredients in a mouthwatering Christmas pressie with a difference for his wife Jools.

Better known for transforming the diets of schoolchildren, Jamie spiced up his spouse's runaround vehicle into a boy racer car.

Multi-millionaire Jamie, 37, breathed new life into her used car with a wonderful concoction of flame stickers, racing seats and a new exhaust. He also changed the body colour from silver to black.

And Jools, 32, was apparently thrilled with the chef's latest masterpiece!

Jamie told his fans he gave the car the 'Pimp Your Ride' treatment, tweeting: "For jools xmas present I took her 3rd hand super Awful run around car (she loves it with a passion?)

"Yeah man, we're talking …roaring flames to go with the 950 cc hair dryer engine, beefy exhaust back box to make it rumble down the high street and bad boy black covers that is class."

He said that weirdly enough she really loved the transformation.

The Olivers enjoyed the festive season with their children Jamie Poppy Honey Rosie, 10, Daisy Boo Pamela, nine, Petal Blossom Rainbow, three, and son Buddy Bear Maurice, two.

But Jamie recently revealed that he isn't hoping to add to that number, saying: "I feel like we are just out of nappies now, I have got four kids and it's more than enough."

Meanwhile, still on Christmas motoring, fears that 1,213 jobs could go under new Government plans to centralise the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) have sparked a 24-hour strike today.

The Government hopes to concentrate the DVLA in its Swansea HQ and switch more services online by the end of next year in a move that would threaten the jobs of over a fifth of its 6,116-strong workforce.

Department of Transport chiefs claim the change would help deliver modern, more effective services and save about £28million a year.

But unions say such a move would lead to increased vehicle tax evasion and fraud.

The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union has delivered its largest-ever paper petition - with 72,000 signatures - to the Department of Transport, protesting against the planned cuts.

The PCS says it is 'very concerned' about the lack of awareness among people that the offices are set to close.

The DVLA's 10 enforcement offices are also joining the PCS's day of action.

The authority is responsible for maintaining a database of drivers and vehicles across the country.
