The TV chef has made big money for publisher Penguin, notching up sales of £134 million across his book deal.

Penguin chief exec Tom Weldon said: "It is a great achievement to make it to Christmas number one, let alone to do it three years in a row.

"One of the keys to Jamie's success is that he tries to do something special with every one of his books."

15-Minute Meals sold 117,911 copies this week, double the number of nearest rival, Guinness World Records 2013.

Other books in the top five include Miranda Hart's Is It Just Me?, Sports Personality of the Year winner Bradley Wiggins's memoir My Time and Jeff Kinney's The Third Wheel.
