Matt Allwright has said he makes restaurateurs and even estate agents nervous.

The Food Inspectors and Rogue Traders star, who also works on The One Show, has become something of a consumer champion.

Asked how restaurateurs and shopkeepers reacted when he walked in, he said: "People always look nervous when I walk in.

"Even the most innocuous of places, such as estate agents, although that's particularly satisfying.

"I do tend to get that reaction, but that's OK."

Matt, who's back for a second series of The Food Inspectors with co-host Chris Hollins, said his experiences haven't put him off food.

"I really like food! I lived in Japan for three years and the stuff that I ate there would just make your hair curl," he said.

Matt plays in bands at weekends, but he definitely won't be having a career change.

"I love music, but I know I'm not good enough to be able to do it professionally, so like most weekend warriors, I'm just happy to do it to enjoy it."

:: The Food Inspectors continues on BBC One on Wednesdays at 8pm.
