James Martin returns to Saturday Morning

Saturday Morning with James Martin

James Martin returns to Saturday mornings on ITV with new cookery show to rival Saturday Kitchen.

Anyone who’s been missing their weekly Saturday morning serving of James Martin since he left Saturday Kitchen last year will be very pleased to hear this exciting news.

The much-loved chef will star in two brand new series on ITV, as well as a new peak commission, as he takes on his former show in a ratings war.

Called Saturday Morning with James Martin it will be a two-hour programme recorded in James’ own home.

Along with big name guests from the worlds of entertainment, food and sport, the new series will be broadcast from James’ own kitchen, where guests and crew will gather round the counter as they cook and chat.

Speaking about his new show, James said

‘Being back on Saturday mornings feels really exciting, not a day has gone by in the last year without someone asking me if I’ll be back at that time!’

‘But it was really important to me to do things differently… so the new show will take some unexpected turns, watch this space!’

Fans of the Yorkshire-born chef will be especially pleased to hear he has yet another new programme in the pipeline.

James Martin American Adventure

Following the huge success of his James Martin’s French Adventure ITV have confirmed a follow-up series following James on a road trip across the USA.

James Martin’s American Adventure will become an addition to ITV’s daytime schedule.

Speaking of the new ventures, James said

‘ITV is just such a wonderful broadcaster and an absolute pleasure to work with. Me and my team feel right at home here and are really excited about growing our relationship with the new projects we have coming up.

America is a place I have always loved and the chance to go and explore it both for Daytime and Peak at ITV is one I simply couldn’t resist!’
