In a previous interview with HELLO!, the doting dad-of-five opened up about his boy's love of cooking. "He feels that cooking starts with potions," he joked. "The potions that he makes ends up with a massive cauldron in the garden with mud and all kinds of horrible stuff mixed with stuff that I don't want to talk about."

Elaborating further, Jamie teased: "He goes off and steals some of my most expensive ingredients and he's just glugging it all in. Last time I even looked, he was even peeing in it. He's like all over the place… And I don't let him, and that is why he thinks I'm not supporting his career."

When asked about his other children, Jamie explained how his teenagers are less engaged when it comes to cooking. "The teenagers are not giving me much at the moment," he admitted. "But just a few years ago, they were all into baking, they were all into bread.

"When they were sort of aged seven to 11, they picked and washed, they would make all the dressings for the salads. They would help me with the marinating. So any stuff that meant getting involved with bashing and thudding or drizzling."

Jamie: Keep Cooking Family Favourites airs on Channel 4 at 8.30pm
