‘I was scared’ Saturday Kitchen’s Matt Tebbutt addresses comedian Jo Brand’s appearance
Saturday Kitchen host Matt Tebbutt, 47, has opened up about a “scary” moment on his weekend cooking show, in relation to a particular guest’s appearance on the programme. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the renowned chef revealed that he was terrified of comedian and presenter Jo Brand, 63, because of her notoriously quick wit and sharp tongue.
The BBC host, who has been fronting the show for the last five years, revealed that he had reservations about interacting with the The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice presenter.
When questioned about his most memorable moments on the cooking show, the former restaurant owner immediately bought up the flame-haired comedian.
“Jo Brand,” he admitted, “I was slightly scared that she was coming on, because you know how sharp she is and how quick.”
Matt revealed that he worried about putting his foot in his mouth and paying for it by being the victim of the star’s quick tongue.

He continued: “I thought, ‘Oh god, I’m going to say something stupid and shes going to destroy me’.”
However, the star went on to relay that he had nothing to worry about as Jo turned out to be a “delightful” guest.
He added: “But she was utterly delightful, what a lovely woman.”
Matt also explained what makes a great episode of Saturday Kitchen, revealing that the celebrity guests have a lot to do with it.
Commenting on his guests, Matt continued: “And they sit there and they want to drink the wine, they want to eat the food and it’s almost like a club.
“They know the people, they know the characters and they want to get involved and that’s the show at its best.”
Addressing his pre-show routines, the chef, who replaced presenter James Martin in 2016, revealed that he spends Friday night researching his guests and looking over recipes.
“On a Friday night I’m absolutely monk like, I’m in my hotel room, don’t go out, go to bed at 9pm on the dot,” he admitted.
