Top chef Jamie Oliver thinks he has found the perfect recipe for chart success after making sweet music with Ed Sheeran and Sir Paul McCartney.

The TV chef, 39, has co-written a song with Ed, 24, to be released in May to promote Food Revolution Day, aimed at educating children about food. Now this is going to be one tasty treat.

The two met in Sydney on Friday night to finalise the recording plans and to confirm the stars who have agreed to take part.

Jamie says: "I got an email this morning to call Paul, he's just put down bass on lyrics on a special anthem that I've written for Food Revolution Day. I wrote it with Ed Sheeran. It'll go out in beginning of May, a viral campaign.

"We laid down the tracks and Ed set me the task of going out and getting the band together so I said to Paul, 'Will you lay down bass and he said yes!'."

Jamie is also throwing Chris Martin, 38, and Paloma Faith, 33, into the sugary mix with the cherry on top going to Jazzie B, 52, from Soul II Soul. If all goes to plan, the song will be released free of charge and race to the top of the charts. Unless, of course, it turns into one very soggy bottom.

Speaking on Nova FM, Jamie adds: "In doing this song with Ed, nobody has actually said no yet.

It is pretty amazing.

"Paloma Faith, Jazzie B from Soul II Soul is doing spoken word, Chris Martin is putting some keys down. Ultimately it comes down to kids and food so I think we can get a great message out there.

It is "Pal fro do Cpdc an can out t "T poore the wo "The weird thing is poorest communities in the world cook the most incredible food so a lot of it comes back to education." As Ed's new BFF, Jamie was backstage at his gig in Sydney on Thursday night. And we hear the food boff was raising the roof with his praise for the flame-haired popstrel.

A source tells us: "Jamie is a massive fan of Ed's and is delighted to be working with him. They've become really good mates." Here's hoping they don't end up with egg on their faces.
