The Brexit results have polarised a lot of people and celebrities like Jamie Oliver do not like the direction that Britain is taking.

The celebrity chef is completing a two-year production on a new series that looks at parts of the world where diets help people live longer and happier. However after the referendum, he took to Instagram to give his opinions on the outcome.

While Oliver says he accepts the results of Brexit, he can’t help but feel a bit emotional stating “I finish my journey on the beautiful island of Sardinia, where at the end of the day’s filming, as the sun set – I looked back and saw the European flag. For me.. symbolic and very sad. But in life, you don’t always get what you want. So guys, whether you voted In or Out, we are where we are.”

Where Oliver draws, the line is in the push for Boris Johnson to become Prime Minster. Oliver made his point very clear on the social media page saying “But I beg you one thing Great Britain. Give me Boris f****** Johnson as our Prime Minister and I’m done.”

Oliver stated that he believes the Brexit referendum has already brought great unrest to Europe, its people, and divided the citizens of England. While he is happy to return to England and “work harder than ever to make this work” he won’t do it with Johnson as PM. After all the work that he has done in Australia with his restaurant, his Ministry of Food, and his ties to Woolworths perhaps the next place of residency could be down under.

A thought for Great Britain….. For the last two years, I have been filming all over the world in places where people live the longest, healthiest, happiest and most productive lives studying there food and culture. And now I finish my journey on the beautiful island of Sardinia, where at the end of the day’s filming, as the sun set – I looked back and saw the European flag. For me.. symbolic and very sad. But in life you don’t always get what you want. So guys, whether you voted In or Out, we are where we are. But at some point soon we all need to come back together and make the best of what will be a very bumpy 5 years. This referendum has fractured Europe, divided families and split the country. The divorce of our European marriage will be very costly and provoke a bitterness towards us as a trusted country in the world…However I do believe in democracy and Britain has spoken. In my own way I will now roll up my sleeves and work harder than ever to make this work. But I BEG YOU ONE THING GREAT BRITAIN ???? Give me Boris Johnson as our Prime Minister and I’m done. I’m out. My faith in us will be broken forever. So speak up people – let’s stop being spectators! We can not let this happen- share the hell out of this !! #BuggerOffBoris Trust and building relationships with other country’s is the only currency that really works. (Tune — #TemperTrap)

Do you think Jamie is right about Johnson being the wrong man to lead Britain? Would you welcome Oliver as an Australian if he does indeed leave?
