Celebrity Chef Antony Worrall Thompson has issued a statement via his website apologising for shoplifting cheese and wine from Tesco.
The chef/TV star said,
I am so sorry for all my recent stupid and irresponsible actions; I am of course devastated for my family and friends, whom I’ve let down and will seek the treatment that is clearly needed. I am not the first, and I certainly won’t be the last person to do something without rhyme or reason – what went through my head, only time will tell.
Of course, I must also apologise sincerely to Tesco, with whom I’m had a long and genuine working relationship, and to all the staff at the Henley branch, many of whom I’ve got to know over the years.
Once again, I am so sorry and hopefully in the future I can make amends.

It’s obvious his publicist told him to throw in the “I will seek treatment” line to gain some sympathy.
Antony you don’t need any “treatment”. You stole the cheese and wine because you didn’t want to pay and thought you would get away with it. End of! Don’t do it again.
