The proud Liverpudlian co-hosts with Tim Lovejoy in their Channel 4 home, and encourages everyone to try his online recipes at Eat The Chef.


After years on the BBC as Something For The Weekend’s resident chef, Simon Rimmer now co-hosts Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch.

Simon’s easy Liverpudlian manner has served him well as the face of cooking video website Eat the Chef. He has also presented programmes on several channels, including Breaking Into Tesco, This Little Farmer and To Buy or Not to Buy. As resident chef on BBC One’s Something For The Weekend, Simon and presenter Tim Lovejoy’s food and football-related banter established them as viewer favourites and they now host their own show, Sunday Brunch.

Simon is the founder of Greens, a vegetarian restaurant in Manchester, and the author of several popular cookbooks including The Seasoned Vegetarian. His second restaurant, Earle, also in Manchester, was named top celebrity restaurant in the Observer Food Monthly Awards.

Looking Ahead to International Women’s Day

We were joined by four fantastic speakers to look ahead at International Women’s Day. With the theme of this year’s event being #InspireInclusion, we were lucky enough to hear from four women who have each blazed a trail in their respective fields: CEO of Channel 4, Alex Mahon; the former Australian Prime Minister and Chair of Kings’ Global Institute of Women’s Leadership, Julia Gillard; one of the leading voices in football, Eniola Aluko MBE; and broadcaster and journalist, Samira Ahmed.
