The Wetherspoon chef who shared a clip on TikTok showing how a 'spoons full English breakfast is made' has claimed he was sacked following his viral fame. Here's the video that started all the drama:
The footage was uploaded by former chef, J Salsa (username @_jahkt) and he showcased to fans of the British pub chain how they cook up their famous full English.
In the clip, he says: "How to make a Wetherspoon's brekkie, let's go!
"First things first, slap on your Peppa Pig," he explains, before cracking an egg on to the grill - with one hand, we should add; very impressive.
"Hash browns down the fryer, slice of bread onto the grill to get toasted, then start setting up your plate.
"Flip the bacon, because we don't eat raw s**t round here."
Finally, when all the components are ready he assembles them onto the plate to join the tomato and sausage before spooning on some baked beans to finish the dish.
Hundreds of people commented on the clip - with many saying they were pleasantly surprised to find out so many of the elements of the Wetherspoon breakfast are cooked to order, rather than being zapped in the microwave as they'd assumed.
"Wait they don't actually microwave everything?" one asked.
Someone else commented: "I genuinely thought Spoons kitchens only had microwaves in AHAHAH."
But unfortunately for the chef, he said he was suspended and eventually sacked by his Wetherspoon bosses who allegedly didn't like the idea of him uploading videos of the pub's recipes online.
He said in a follow-up video: "I've just come back from my disciplinary hearing. To my expectations, I've been fired... I've been withdrawn from JD Wetherspoons.
"I'm not surprised at all because at the end of the day, I did break company policy. I did have my phone in the kitchen and I did post work stuff on social media. Basically they brought up the fact that I continued to post about my ongoing investigation like when I announced the suspension.
"I feel like I would have been fired either way to be honest because that s**t went viral. That s**t hit headline news, it was crazy, it's actually mad what's gone on in these two weeks.
"I saw my face everywhere and it's weird still. Thank you for all the love and support, it's actually mad.
"Now I'm just going to try and make a bad situation and make it positive. I might just do some cooking videos at home, that's what you were saying I should do. I could make Wetherspoon-type food at home."
