Gregg Wallace breaks silence on viral Saturday routine article

Gregg Wallace breaks silence on viral Saturday routine article

He's spoken out for the first time since it took over everyone's feeds over on X

Weekends are what we make them. Just ask MasterChef presenter Gregg Wallace.

The TV presenter and former greengrocer has gone viral this week after his routine for a standard Saturday was posted all over social media platform X, previously known as Twitter.

And he's now spoken out since the frenzy for the first time.

Wallace, 59, featured in The Telegraph's weekly 'My Saturday' column where he went through his routine, hour-by-hour.

He's not the first to do it, with it being a standard feature in the newspaper to show a small insight in to how those with celebrity status might live.

But his routine has caught the attention of thousands, with it becoming somewhat of a viral meme.

The day starts off quite normal - if not a little early - for Wallace, reading a book in bed for an hour from 5am.

By 7am it's time to get those gains, with Wallace heading down to his local gym. It's VIP treatment for the Londoner, with his club letting him in 30 minutes before it opens to the public.

"I have a swim and a sauna by myself," Wallace says. "Then I'll review my to-do list while walking on a treadmill, no sweating."

Wallace has a pretty wild weekend schedule.

He's got a six pack to maintain, Wallace says, so he's hitting at least 7,000 steps a day.

After the gym it's time for his favourite - a trip to restaurant chain Harvester for a 10.30am breakfast with his PA Helen.

"I've never been disappointed," he says. "It's all about expectation when it comes to food.

"I've regularly been disappointed in three-star Michelin restaurants around Europe but never in Harvester."

He's regularly tuck in to a plate full of bacon, sausage and fried egg. A breakfast of champions for the MasterChef man.

Just 90 minutes after his breakfast it's time for lunch, which his wife Anna cooks up for him, before spending an hour and a half of quality time with his son Sid, who is four and is autistic.

He said: "I’m a much better father now I’m older, although another child isn’t something that I would have chosen at my age.

"I was always very honest with Anna, but it’s what she wanted and I love her. I just requested two things – that we had help in the house (so her mum moved in), and secondly that we had at least one week a year when we holidayed just the two of us."

3pm is video game o'clock, with 'amateur historian' Wallace sitting down for two solid hours of Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia.

By 6pm Wallace is cooking the only meal he makes his family in the week, usually opting for grilled fish from a local trader. Come 9pm it's lights out.

The viral article in The Telegraph.

Wallace has now spoken out on the article when questioned by fans.

Posting a picture of a business trip to Loughborough University, Wallace was asked by a fan: "Harvester for breakfast?"

Responding, he revealed he doesn't head to his beloved Harvester every weekend. It's more twice a month, max.

He said: "Only once or twice a month when PA needs to meet me."

Another follower asked Wallace: "How's the Total War campaign going?"

Responding to them, Wallace said: "Hello. Did you read the original article in The Telegraph?"

Gregg's Instagram followers were having a bit of fun.

Over on X, he continues to go viral for the article.

One person wrote: "It's possible that Gregg Wallace will never stop trending. That one article will just keep being shared and reshared, and eventually consume the entirety of social media. That's all we'll ever see, for ever. Gregg's eternal Saturday."

Another wrote: "A masterpiece. Total masterpiece. The gym bit, the Harvester, the everything about it. Thank you."

A third chimed in and said: "Awake at five, Breakfast at 10.30 and lunch at 12? What madness is this?"
