Matt Tebbutt previously faced backlash after taking over from Saturday Kitchen host James Martin.
The television chef, who also appears on Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped, has been the leading host on the BBC show since 2016.
However, Matt’s transition into the role wasn’t exactly the easiest.
Matt Tebbutt opens up on Saturday Kitchen criticism
Earlier this year, Matt revealed that it was “slow process” after taking over from the much-loved original host.
The television personality, 47, had previously stood-in for James whilst he was away.
He later took on the main hosting role following James’ decision to quit.
Addressing the backlash at the time, Matt told the Express: “It was a slow process and people like to have their favourites and people don’t generally like change.
“So yeah, it was a gradual process.”
However, Matt explained that he didn’t regret the decision after accepting the role.
He continued: “When the offer comes in, what do you do?
“You don’t do it because you’re nervous? Or you do it to the best of your ability and if people like it then great, if they don’t, well so be it and if the BBC didn’t like it then I wouldn’t last long.”
During the chat, the chef also revealed that he hasn’t seen his former co-star James “in years”.
