She said: “My thoughts are with friends and colleagues in the hospitality industry who are trained chefs and deserved a place at Corden’s table, rather than the rookie from Brooklyn.
“I’m sure I’m not the only one with the same thoughts of nepotism and unfair advantage. It’s no wonder that this kind of display breeds jealousy and frustration.
Despite her annoyance, she admitted that being the child of celebrities must be difficult, constantly being compared to her parents.
