Chef
    (December 28, 1943-September 14, 2009)
    Born in Reading, England, United Kingdom
    Owned the restaurants Floyd's Bistro, Floyd's Restaurant, Floyd's Chophouse and Restaurant (all in Bristol, England) and Floyd's Brassiere and Floyd's Beach Bistro Restaurant (both in Thailand)
    Hosted the British cooking shows 'Floyd on Fish' (1984), 'Floyd on a Pub Run' (1985), 'Floyd on Food' (1986), 'Floyd on France' (1987), 'Floyd on Britain and Ireland' (1988), 'Floyd on American Pie' (1989), 'Floyd on Oz' (1991), 'Floyd on Spain' (1992), 'Floyd on Italy' (1994), 'Floyd on Africa' (1996), 'Floyd Uncorked' (1998), 'Floyd Around The Med' (2000) and 'Floyd's India' (2001)
    Wrote 25 cookbooks and the autobiography 'Out of the Frying Pan' (1997)
    He was a poor businessman and repeatedly had to sell off his restaurants due to financial problems.
    He went bankrupt (1996).
    He was married and divorced four times.
    When his third wife forgot his 50th birthday, he threw a tantrum in which he expelled from his restaurant his wife and 50 customers.
    He complained that restaurant customers were 'thick and snobbish and as stupid as you can get.'
    On his cooking shows, he consumed quite a bit of wine while preparing the food. (Although he insisted, 'I've only been drunk on TV once.')
    His license was suspended for nearly three years after he crashed into another car and his blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit (2004).
    He believed in enjoying food and wine to the fullest.
    The Guardian said his TV appearances were 'a refreshing departure from the prissy, controlled style then in favour at the BBC.'
    He almost drowned filming a sequence at Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
    Marco Pierre White said, 'If you look at TV chefs today, they don't have his magic.'
