James Corden admits he was ‘ungracious’ to restaurant staff: ‘It was wrong’

One of Britain’s best loved television presenters says he was ‘ungracious’ to staff at his favourite restaurant because there was a problem with the food.

Jimmy Tarbuck says he is ‘incredibly grateful’ to his staff for helping him survive his life-threatening illness.

The actor, who played the loveable Derride in TV sitcom Love Thy Neighbour, confirmed he can’t take credit for his famous bowel movements but admitted he would be heartbroken if he never ate a proper meal again.
