MasterChef presenter Gregg Wallace, 56, has opened up on why he decided to quit fronting BBC show Eat Well For Less this year. The popular series addresses the issue of rising food prices, while looking at how they are affecting people’s finances and eating habits.
The star had hosted the programme for eight years with co-star Chris Bavin and admitted he is “really proud” of it.
However, Gregg revealed in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk that he had to step down from the show, as he was “getting tired” of all the travelling it involved.
Breaking his silence on his exit from the programme, the Big Weekends Away presenter said: “[It was] a really tough decision to make.
“I’m really proud of that show and it’s going to carry on going and it’s hugely popular, I just found it increasingly difficult to do.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

“It’s in different bits of the UK, it’s a lot of travelling, it’s long days.”
Dad-of-three Gregg, who welcomed his baby son Sid with wife Anne-Marie Sterpini in 2019, explained: “I’m getting older, I’ve got a baby boy here, I just wanted to cut back somewhere and that was a lot of travelling.
“Show’s like this that I’m doing with Channel 5 [Big Weekends Away], you go away for a weekend, you’re back again.
“With Eat Well, you’re gone for two days at a time regularly and I was just getting tired.
