James Martin jokingly made a quick and embarrassed exit off his Saturday morning breakfast programme after a surprise “proposal” by guest Robert Rinder.
Judge Rinder was the celeb guest on James Martin’s Saturday Morning this weekend as he joined the TV chef in his home kitchen.
The pair shared stories and a few laughs as James cooked up a storm in the kitchen, but the host soon got a bit flustered by his guest’s joking suggestion of marriage.
Robert, 43, was clearly impressed by 48-year-old James’ culinary skills as the chef prepared a sea bass dish while interviewing his guest on June 19.
The barrister said: “I think people should know that when I sat down here in his real house and he said ‘I’m just going to cook for you, make perfect food and then ask you questions whilst serving you expensive wine’ I asked you where Ant and Dec were.”
“They need to invent smell-o-vision, this is heaven,” Rob joyfully exclaimed before getting to grips with the dish.
His appreciation was again on full show as he jokingly asked the chef: “When am I moving in?”
James Martin’s Saturday Morning airs Saturdays at 9:25am on ITV.
