Saturday Kitchen is probably one of our favourite cooking shows out there at the moment.

They lost their full-time host, James Martin, last year and since then the show has been getting various chefs to take charge each weekend morning.

And one of those chefs is our own Donal Skehan.

Now, we all know how great Donal is in the kitchen, but the UK viewers totally fell in love with him this morning.

And of course, Twitter exploded with delight:


He's calmed down since his Naked Chef days, but it seems that Jamie Oliver still has a very… erm, schoolboy-like mind.

Saturday Kitchen viewers were shocked this morning as Jamie made two very rude (but, admittedly hilarious) references live on air.

But, after the chef slipped a couple of sexual innuendos into the cooking show, some fans hit out and said the show was "car crash TV".

The first shock was how he reacted when Joe Hurd said that their fellow guest Anna Jones is a vegetarian.

Jamie said: "Are you vegetarian? Since when? Really? I remember putting pork in your mouth. I know her cook books are vegetarian but you use to love pork."

And then later on in the show, while asking Anna to clean a plate, he said: "Give that plate a good old rim job".

However, after the backlash, other fans began to praise him for lightening the show up a bit, with one Twitter user saying: Saturday Kitchen is EPIC today. It's like watching Father Jack minus the swearing… But then there is still time yet," and another admitting, "most amazing episode ever. Was supposed to leave home twenty minutes ago but just can't miss this wonderment!"

Ah, Jamie. You never fail to surprise us.


Chef and food writer Donal Skehan is set to present this weekend's Saturday Kitchen.

Former anchor James Martin left the show last month after a 10 year stint. He recently revealed that his resignation was down to budget cuts in the BBC, but he is happy he's "off the leash" now.

Donal will be the third celebrity chef to join the show, following on from Michel Roux Jr and Lorraine Pascale.

Saturday Kitchen has become an institution at the BBC and a big part of many people’s weekend routine, so there is huge pressure, but I’m really excited about the challenge of a live show and looking forward to cooking some delicious dishes,” Donal told The Irish Times.
