It’s set to start later on this year.

Confirming the news, he took to Twitter on Friday morning, and wrote: “The news is true I’m coming back to Saturday mornings”.

He then added: “Chuffed for team who work so hard & for the kind viewers for their support over the last 23 yrs! [sic] New shows hitting day & prime time soon!”

He certainly sounds excited!

The new show is set to star celebrity guests as he creates recipes from around the world, but will be in his own home.

It will also be pre-recorded, so will have a slightly different format than his usual live TV stint.

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

We can’t wait!
