Calvin Harris, Sam Smith and The Script are in for a treat at this weekend's Virgin Media V Festival as celebrity chef Luke Thomas will be whipping up some delicious dishes backstage.

Celebrities attending the Hylands Park, Chelmsford, Essex leg of the star-studded music festival will be treated to some serious fine dining in the exclusive VIP artists' area courtesy of the rather fab Mr Thomas.

He's planning on serving up mouth-watering dishes with a BBQ summer-theme, as well as favourite recipes from his best-selling Luke's Cookbook.

We're getting just a tad hungry thinking about it…

Luke Thomas is official head chef for V Festival's VIP artists' area, 2015

Luke said: "I'm thrilled to be at V Festival this weekend where I will be catering for some of the biggest names in music. I'm excited to cook for the likes of Sam Smith, Calvin Harris and Ella Henderson as well as the many other artists and VIPs in attendance. I very much hope to see Taylor Swift and the One Direction boys there too. V is a great festival and it is fantastic to be part of it."

We're hoping to see Taylor and 1D as well! As Taylor's boyfriend Calvin is the headliner, we're keeping our fingers crossed she may jet in from the US to support him, while the One Direction boys are known to love a bit of Virgin Media Louder Lounge action.

Confirmed guests include performers Ella Henderson, Hozier, James Bay, Ellie Goulding and George Ezra, as well as Sir Tom Jones.


As well as his title as V's official backstage chef, Luke has the honour of being the UK's youngest head chef at just 18 years old after taking control of Luke's Dining Room at Sanctum on the Green in 2012. You may also recognise him from BBC2's Great British Menu, where he competed from Wales. He was also the subject of a BBC Three documentary called Britain's Youngest Head Chef.
