Does James Martin film Saturday Morning in his own home?

Yes, he does!

James left BBC One’s Saturday Kitchen in 2016 after hosting it for 10 years.

He started his ITV show in 2017.

Although Saturday Kitchen is live, Saturday Morning is pre-recorded and James admitted in an interview with Hello! why he prefers that.

“I think I’m ok at live, but I’ve proved a point.

“Do I want to do live from my house every Saturday? No, because it’s my house. I can film it when I want to film it, when the guests are free, when they want to come down.

“The guests seem to love it. They don’t seem to realise until they get there that it’s at your house.

“We had Ben Miller down… he didn’t want to leave! Rob Rinder… he came down, didn’t want to go. They love it because it’s different and it’s much more relaxed.”

James Martin’s Saturday Morning airs on ITV at 9.25am on Saturdays.
