‘Wanted a different challenge’ James Martin admits reason behind Saturday Kitchen exit

The celebrity cook gave an interview with the Talkshire podcast in February.

Speaking on the podcast, James talked about how he didn’t realise “how big a deal” the show was until he had left.

He said: “It just really didn’t really hit me until I left Saturday Kitchen, which is five years ago now, I didn’t realise how big a deal it was and I genuinely mean that.”

He also said: “I feel I owe it to my industry in terms of the industry that I fell in love with to give something back.

“That’s my way of doing it if I can support them doing anything.

“The guys are amazing people you know, Lisa Northcote [is a] phenomenal chef, you need to give them a voice and a platform to be able to showcase what they do.

“And they’re better chefs than I will ever be.”
