This Morning presenter Alison Hammond couldn’t keep her eyes off chef Nico Reynolds as he appeared on the show today (October 22).

The TV chef made an appearance on This Morning to show off his fish supper recipe.

However, Alison and viewers at home appeared to be in agreement that Nico was looking pretty tasty himself.

What did Alison say about This Morning chef Nico?

“We’ve got something tasty in the kitchen, we really really have, it’s Nico Reynolds,” said Alison.

Dermot O’Leary replied: “Stop objectifying the chef!”

Sorry Dermot, we’re with Alison here!

But who is Nico, and where have you seen him before?

Who is This Morning chef Nico Reynolds?

Nico is 33 years old and hails from Dublin.

“My mother’s side is from Jamaica and my dad’s side is from Roscommon,” he told Sunday World. “It’s a Jamaican community in London, that’s where that side is and where I go see them.”

His appearance on This Morning marked his British television debut.

However, while he may not be very well known over here in England, he’s already quite the star on Irish TV.

He regularly appears in cooking segments on The Today Show and Ireland AM, and he was previously an in-house chef on Lodging with Lucy.

Nico also bagged his own show this year, Grill Seeker, which launched on RTÉ Player over the summer.

However, despite being known in Ireland, he’s currently working in London.

He’s been living near the Thames, and recently revealed that he’s been making the most of his time there.

“I brought a grill over so I’m gonna go grill on the banks of the Thames, bring my tunes and do what I do,” he told RTÉ.

Nico is also the owner of a restaurant in Dublin named Lil Portie.
