Jools Oliver knows her celebrity chef husband Jamie will never cheat on her. Or if he does, she’ll be the first to know.
Snooping used to be so difficult. All those expensive private investigators and checking for unexplained items on the credit card statement.
But technology has given us many gifts and one of them is the ability to dig your nose deeply and easily into your partner’s privacy. All you need are a couple of passwords.
This from The Daily Mail:
Mrs Oliver made the touchingly frank admission this week when asked if she felt confident about her husband’s dealings with other women.
‘Yeah, I’ll check his email. I’ll check his Twitter. I’ll check his phone. Everything seems fine,’ she said. ‘He says I’m a jealous girl, but I think I’m fairly laid-back, considering.’
Her confession comes as a particular surprise as she and Oliver have previously spoken about their absolute trust in each other.
In fact, Mrs Oliver was once ridiculed for saying she was certain he would never cheat on her during his long absences filming cookery programmes.
In a 2008 interview, she said: ‘I am very secure. People say “Oh you can’t trust a man 100 per cent,” but I’m afraid I say I can.
‘They say every man will have an affair, but I really don’t think mine will.
‘Actually, I know he won’t.’
We have no way of knowing whether Jools checks Jamie’s accounts with his knowledge or not. Does she lunge for the phone when he walks out of a room and casually drop it down the back of the couch when he walks back in (like Billie in Offspring last week)? Or is checking in his phone for analysis part of the daily routine? Like, “Hi honey, how was your day give me your phone so I can do some CSI Jamie.”
