Who should be the new host of Saturday Kitchen?
We’ve had Matt Tebbutt four times. John Torode three.

This week’s 10th September show sees The Hairy Bikers take the helm for their second stint.
But has anyone won your heart since James Martin’s departure?
The social media world has been very quick to praise some guest presenters and equally quick to condemn others. James is clearly a hard act to follow.

Saturday Kitchen has become a national institution and its enduring popularity shows how food has moved from functional niche to ‘mainstream lifestyle’. Its theme tune is now as much a signifier of a Saturday as a leisurely late breakfast, visiting the shops or Match of the Day.
Millions start the weekend by waking up to Saturday Kitchen and an assortment of chefs and celebrities with books or films to promote, with the show competing with the more traditional talk show formats as a number one choice for agents. Meanwhile the Saturday Kitchen recipes, the memorable ‘food heaven and hell’ and the ongoing ‘omelette challenge’ are now part of the national lexicon.
