The five-minute video showed Jamie and Jool's eldest son preparing the meal all by himself. "Hi guys, I'm Buddy Oliver and today I'm going to make some barbecue chicken lollipops," he says at the beginning.

"Whenever you use the barbecue, make sure there is always an adult around," he warned his viewers.

During the clip, which has already been watched by over 300,000 fans, Buddy talked and handled several kitchen utensils with confidence, including knives, graters and the barbecue!

He may only be nine years old, but he is an expert on the matter, and shared several tips with his viewers: "When you're working with a barbecue make sure there is always a hot end and a cold end. To make the hotter end you put more coal on one end and less coal in the other," he explained at one point.

After showing off the end result, the youngster was joined by his younger brother River and dad Jamie. "Look at that! Nice job Buds, you cooked that beautifully," dad Jamie proudly says.
