Gwyneth Paltrow's cooking show has been branded "boring".

A US celebrity has declared she would rather "staple her eyelids shut" than watch the 'Iron Man' star in the kitchen.

Bethenny Frankel - chef and star of 'The Real Housewives of New York City' - can't bring herself to watch even one minute of Gwyneth's food programme 'Spain... on the road Again' because the 36-year-old actress is so "over-managed".

She said: "I'd rather staple my eyelids shut than watch Gwyneth cook. Gwyneth is afraid to reveal who she really is - she's so manhandled by publicists and managers. Her show would be way too boring to watch."

Gwyneth filmed the 13-episode show with American chef Mario Batali, food writer Mark Bittman and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols.

The foursome travelled to different regions of Spain to explore local culinary traditions and history.

Gwyneth recently revealed she had such a good time filming the series, she would consider moving to the Mediterranean country permanently.

She currently lives in New York with her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, and their children Apple, five, and Moses, three, but the family also have a home in London.
