James Martin vows top Brum chef ‘won’t turn up on Saturday morning again’ after blunder

James Martin playfully declared a top Brummie chef “won’t be coming back on Saturday morning” following an injury on the ITV show. The TV chef has humorously suggested that Glynn Purnell may not be returning to his show after the restaurateur lost various pieces of cutlery during his first cooking appearance on the show.

The celebrity chef, from Solihull, was cooking up delicacies such as tandoori cod and rack of lamb on James Martin’s ITV Saturday show this weekend. The 49-year-old, whose Cornwall Street restaurant in Birmingham holds a Michelin star, was joined by fellow chefs Asma Khan and Kenny Atkinson and Loose Women panellist Linda Robson.

When he started showing viewers how to make a surf and turf dish, the chef was stunned as he couldn’t find a spoon to taste it. Host James Martin joined the search with no luck.

Glynn, who appeared on My Kitchen Rules and was a judge on Come Dine With Me – Champion of Champions, then realized there was a spoon ‘cooked’ in the sauce. He joked: “I lost a spoon there chef, but I’m sure we’ll get it out eventually…

“That one’s in there again, cook, I want to take it for myself.” James burst out laughing and jokingly asked if Glynn would make another appearance on Saturday morning.

“She’s Glynn Purnell – it’s the first and last time you’ll see him,” James joked. He quickly clarified that he was “just kidding” before digging into his plate with a fork.

Fans loved Glynn’s appearance on the show. One fan posted on X, formerly Twitter: “Don’t normally watch morning cooking shows but drooling over @JamesMartin Saturday Kitchen’s mussels ribs served by Glynn Purnell today!”

Another commented: “Enjoyed watching @yummy_brummie on James Martin’s Saturday morning @jamesmartinchef. You were entertaining and informative in equal measure.” “Great to see @yummie_brummie,” said a third.
