Phil VickeryPhil Vickery MBE
Phil Vickery MBE was a member of England’s Rugby World Cup winning squad in 2003, playing in all seven matches in the tournament, and is a former England captain. Given the nickname ‘Raging Bull’, he played for England 73 times and in three Rugby World Cups, including as England captain in the 2007 tournament. He also toured Australia and South Africa with the British & Irish Lions.

Phil is also something of a dab hand in the kitchen, as proved when he won the 2011 Masterchef series.

Nowadays he is often seen on TV, either commentating, hosting or cooking on multiple shows – and at food demonstrations.

He is a patron of The Country Food Trust Charity which produces food and donates it to people in need.
