Gregg Wallace quits as co-host of Inside the Factory to spend more time with autistic son

OHMYGOSSIP — Gregg Wallace is stepping down from his co-hosting role on ‘Inside the Factory’ to be there for his autistic son Sid.
The 58-year-old presenter has co-hosted the BBC series – which sees him and Cherry Healey snoop inside Britain’s biggest factories – since 2015 but has announced he is leaving the presenting job to focus on finding his three-year-old boy, who is non-verbal, an appropriate school.
Speaking on Gaby Roslin’s BBC Radio London show, he said: “So I’ve made a decision that I’m actually not going to do ‘Inside The Factory’ anymore.
“It’s a good time to stop doing it because there’s actually 12 episodes in the can … so I wouldn’t have been filming for a while anyway so it just seemed like a good idea to stop it.”
The former greengrocer – who has Sid with his wife Anne-Marie Sterpini – continued: “Imagine a child that you can’t threaten or bribe and that’s basically what you’ve got.
“You’ve got a little boy who’s cuddly and happy and naughty, like any little boy would be, but he can’t speak, he can’t talk to you, so he gets frustrated because he finds it difficult to tell you what exactly it is he needs.
“Right now, we need to find education for him and I can’t just leave that to Anna – that’s a big, big decision.
“I mean, all parents worry about the schools that children will go to. Ours is even more highlighted because of poor little Sid’s issues.”
Gregg – who also has Libby and Tom with his second wife Denise and has been married four times – will remain a judge on ‘MasterChef’.
The TV star first opened up about Sid’s autism on panel show ‘Loose Women’ last summer to help raise awareness of the neurodevelopmental disorder.
He said: “He’s got something called global development delay, which means he is not speaking.
“But he is lovely, he is cuddly… If he wants something, he grabs your hand.”
