Now his delicious BBQ condiment Reggae Reggae Sauce is a firm favourite with the nation and he has also written cookbooks, opened restaurants, and featured on other TV shows including Celebrity Mastermind.
It wouldn’t even be Levi’s first rodeo on Big Brother, having appeared on the OG programme as a surprise celebrity guest back in 2013, during which he cooked a Caribbean barbecue for the housemates.
According to a source, Levi isn’t just a rumoured Celebrity Big Brother contestant but has formalised his appearance on the show and has actually signed on the dotted line.
‘Levi will be great for the Celebrity Big Brother house. He’s got a few exciting projects coming up and he’s such a fun character,’ they told The Mirror.
‘He’s self-made and is an inspiration to a new generation.’

As well as Celebrity Big Brother, Levi is also rumoured to be Cricket on the current series of The Masked Singer UK.
Both Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan guessed the chef was behind the costume due to clues implying they had a link to the Carribean.
There are also plans for Fisherman’s Friends writer-producers Meg Leonard and Nick Moorcroft to turn Levi’s life into a film.
Levi gave an update on the movie’s progress to Metro.co.uk in 2021.

He said: ‘We were in a meeting a few days ago at Soho House. I can’t believe there is going to be a movie about me. We were reading the script and tying it together.
‘It’s so exciting. I can’t wait to find out who is going to play me.’
