  41. 54. Oliver, no fan of political correctness, has hit back at reports he's been banned from the British town Rotherham – filming location for the celebrity chef's Ministry of Food . Talk of a ban surfaced when residents of Rotherham accused Oliver of portraying them as &quot;dumbos&quot; and &quot;numpties&quot;. Oliver says the ban is &quot;bollocks&quot; and that he's been targeted by a minority of locals who see his show as an Oliver &quot;vanity project&quot; rather than a genuine campaign to help people whose diets are so appalling that they're eating themselves to death. A Rotherham local, former chef Alan Dale, says: &quot;My message to Jamie is to stay away. Feelings are running high because he has made us look like complete idiots.&quot;
