JAMIE And Jimmy's Friday Night Feast has long been thrilling fans since it first started on Channel 4 in 2014.

But people often wonder if the idyllic cafe, set on Southend Pier, is real, or just a studio.

Where is Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty's café on Southend Pier?

You can't actually grab a bite to eat at Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty's café because it is usually only in use for the two weeks in which the show is filmed.

Guests seen in the café have to apply on the show as extras for the Channel 4 series.

If you choose to visit Southend Pier, you can learn more about the café before it stopped functioning as a commercial entity in 2005.

Just head over to the Cultural Centre at the end of the Pier which was brought in by Southend Borough Council.
