He said that living on a farm for the duration of the war and eating organic food without chemicals did wonders for his health and growth.

Sir Michael, 86, said on the BBC radio: & When you think of the Second World War, from my point of view, this was one of the best things that happened to me.

& # 39; For six years to begin, you could only get organic food. I grew up completely with organic food and never with chemicals.

& # 39; You could not get sugar, sweet chocolate and the like, and pies. I spent four and a half years there and lived and worked on the farm. & # 39;

While the family was away from their home in Southwark, it was destroyed by a German bomb, giving them a & # 39; luxury & # 39; prefab from the government.

He added: “I had never lived in a house, so when I moved to live there, it was like moving to Mayfair, except that I didn't know where Mayfair was. It was your own private space. & # 39;
