James Martin took a hilarious swipe at his Saturday Kitchen crew member as the TV chef returned for a new episode of the weekend cooking show.

As fans of the hit BBC dance competition look forward to meeting the Strictly Come Dancing contestants and their professional partners in two weeks time, the hit TV chef brought his own Strictly winner on the show to help him out in the kitchen.

James was joined by TV presenter Ore Oduba who stole the glitterball trophy on back in 2016 which they discussed at length as his cooking companion rustled up some delicious looking dishes.

While the 2021 line-up get stuck in the gym ahead of the gruelling dance competition, James asked what the secret was that helped Ore succeed from his time on the show.

Baffled by his moves on the dancefloor, James asked: “We’ve talked about theatre and all the stuff you were doing before. Could you do it [dancing] before? It seemed to come naturally to you.”

Ore joked: “James, after a couple of rosés, we’re all great dancers” as they laughed over a glass of wine together.

Unlike his guest, James struggled to shake his hips on the dancefloor when he joined the show in 2005 with his partner Camilla Dallerup.

And James couldn’t help but poke fun at his sound man on the set of daytime show as he pointed out the supportive crew member also found it difficult to keep in time with music.

“You want to see Matt the sound man,” he revealed as chuckles echoed from behind the camera.

James continued: “And he definitely isn’t, trust me.”

As he served up their dish, Ore jumped to the defence of the rhythmically challenged soundman and added: “But the thing is, he think he is, and that’s what counts.”

Continuing the joke, James quipped: “He thinks he a sound man but there we go.”

The snarky comment received a concerned “Ooooh” from the crew as they all giggled at the running banter.

Feeling he took the joke too far, James apologised sincerely to Matt the sound man on camera, before he noticed his microphone had been turned off.

Shocked at by the awkward reception, James shouted: “I’ve gone quiet!” as his colleagues erupted into laughter at his expense.

James soon moved on with the rest of the show after his cheeky joke with his fellow colleague, and the show was well received by viewers all round.
