Jamie Oliver's son Buddy is clearly following in his dad's footsteps with his passion for cooking, and many of the chef's fans have a lot of love for his son's recipes.

The ten-year-old shared a new video on Sunday, via his dad's Instagram page, and as usual, he received plenty of compliments for his efforts.

Not everyone agreed though, and there was a little debate in the comment section over the recipe, which was for campfire beans.

The recipe included tomatoes and leeks, which unexpectedly became a bit of a hot topic!

One commenter wrote: "Why is nothing washed after chopping, I saw soil on those leeks," while another added: "Why you removing the green tops of the leeks?!!! WHAT A WASTE!!! You can eat those too and they are so good!"

However, one of Jamie's followers was quick to correct them, writing: "They are not going to be wasted! He said they were to be used for stock!!"

Many more of the dad-of-five's fans were full of praise for his eldest son's talent, including comparing him with his father.

One commented: "The Naked Chef Mark II in the making," referring to the TV show that made Jamie famous.

Other supportive comments included: "Brilliant like his dad," "So natural and confident," and: "Awww he's just adorable."

Jamie and his wife Jools also received a lot of love from fans last weekend, when a photo of the couple's youngest son posted by the doting mum unexpectedly caused a debate because it showed River, four, sucking his thumb.

Jools' defenders included her husband Jamie's mum Sally, who wrote a sweet message to her daughter-in-law.

Her comment read: "Jools, that person who was judgemental about the thumb-sucking is not a real person if you look at their profile, they must just be a troll, just ignore and delete.

"Anyway, Jamie sucked his thumb for years and it hasn’t done him any harm (and he probably still does when stressed)."
