Interestingly, James hosted rival show, Saturday Kitchen, for a decade from 2006. In an interview with HELLO!, the chef told us how he doesn't miss presenting a live show.

James said: "People say do you ever miss the live thing? I did live for 25 years. I don't know whether it's my age? I think I'm ok at live, but I've proved a point.

"Do I want to do live from my house every Saturday? No, because it's my house. I can film it when I want to film it, when the guests are free, when they want to come down.

"The guests seem to love it. They don't seem to realise until they get there that it's at your house. We had Ben Miller down… he didn't want to leave! Rob Rinder… he came down, didn't want to go. They love it because it's different and it's much more relaxed."
