What did James Martin say about Saturday Morning?

In his post, featuring a photo of his iconic kitchen with its huge gold and black clock, he spoke of the “changes” since he last filmed, before the coronavirus lockdown.

James wrote in the caption: “Well it’s been a while so might be a bit rusty… the new Saturday show series… a few changes, as you can imagine.

“Limited crew, guests etc… but new ideas and the team have been working hard to make it all work, given the amount of restrictions in place…

“Let’s do this thing, then.”

In the comments, his fans were ecstatic at the prospect of new episodes of Saturday Morning with James Martin.

One said excitedly: “Yey cant wait. Saturday morning normal service to resume.”

Another wrote: “Can’t wait to see you back, Saturday mornings aren’t the same without you.”

A third commented: “Look forward to new series.”

Someone else told him, with a string of smiling emojis: “Yay! Cannot wait! x.”

Best news ever.

“Look forward to new series,” said a fifth.

“Best news ever,” said another tagging a pal in the comments.

While new episodes of Saturday Morning were put on hold, fans still got to watch classic episodes as ITV continued to air repeats.

The former Ready Steady Cook host presented the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen for a decade.

And earlier this month, fans were over the moon when he featured on two channels at the same time.

One social media user wrote, “James Martin is on BBC and ITV simultaneously!” and another gave James the thumbs up, as they tweeted to him to point out how he was taking over TV.
