James Martin: Saturday Morning chef admits he was ‘scarred for life’ by wedding discovery

James Martin, 47, spoke out against a surprising food trend involving cheese during today’s episode of Saturday Morning on ITV. The chef addressed the incident, which he encountered at a wedding when he was younger, while preparing a delicious dish with celery in the show’s kitchen.

Explaining his recipe, James told viewers: “The veg can go in our pan, again with a little bit of celery.

“Often people don’t use celery really for cooking nowadays, but back when I was training in college we used to braise this a lot, it’s a fantastic ingredient.”

However, in spite of his appreciation for the underrated ingredient, the TV personality admitted he was less than impressed when he discovered it was being served with “cheese in a tube” at weddings when he was a teenager.

He added: “I became sort of scarred for life when we used to go and visit weddings when I was a teenager and they put cheese in a tube over a celery stick. Do you remember that?”

Elsewhere, James caused a stir as he showed off his weight loss.

The Saturday Morning host took to social media to share a snap of himself alongside Wet Wet Wet singer Marti Pellow and fans were quick to point out his new “trim” figure.


James told his followers he had recently lost one and a half stone.

In the image, which he shared with his 277,000 followers, the smartly-dressed pair appeared to be in an outdoor kitchen, possibly filming scenes for the cookery show.

The television presenter simply captioned the picture: “Look who’s here.”
