London Fire Brigade have offered Coldplay frontman Chris Martin a free home fire safety visit after his wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, admitted that he has twice called 999 after kitchen cooking disasters.

Last night Paltrow said on Channel 4 cookery show, Jamie and Jimmy's Food Fight Club: "He has twice cooked a meal and this is not a joke, both times the fire brigade came. I swear on my life – both times."

London Fire Brigade's Head of Operations, Prevention and Response Dave Brown released a statement saying:

"People often think that fires only happen to vulnerable people but young professionals have a quarter of all house fires in London. Chris will know that fires can develop almost at the 'Speed of Sound' so it’s important that when they're cooking, people don't have 'A Rush of Blood to the Head' and leave their cooking unattended causing a lot of 'Trouble'.

He added: "Three out of five house fires start in the kitchen so at this time of year with the family coming round from Christmas dinner it is important to follow our advice."

Chris Martin last night (December 12) performed at 12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief at Madison Square Garden in New York. He played Coldplay's 'Viva La Vida' before being joined by Michael Stipe to sing an acoustic version of R.E.M's 'Losing My Religion'.
