Elsewhere in the interview the star revealed that he was initially “nervous” to take over the BBC show following James Martin’s departure and decade of fronting the programme.

Matt said: “I was quite nervous about it, it wasn’t without trepidation.

“Of course I was kind of a little bit nervous as he has an army of dedicated fans,” he said, referring to James’ loyal fanbase.


However, the acclaimed chef didn’t let his nerves get the best of him and enthusiastically accepted the presenting role.

When asked whether he has any communication with the Michelin star chef, Matt revealed that the pair are both busy with their own shows.

“I haven’t seen him in years,” he admitted.


Matt went on to explain: “He [James] does his thing on ITV, he’s got his social circle and it just happens he doesn’t cross with mine.

“We’ve all got our own little circles we mix in, but they don’t cross,” he clarified.
