It’s not just going to be me standing at an oven baking some bread! James Martin

Martin, who first toured in 2016, said he is excited to return to the stage and that he “was absolutely blown away by the reception” last time around.

He said: “It was really thrilling to be able interact more directly with an audience, which is something I can’t do on TV. Lots has happened since the last tour, I’ve been on a culinary journey of a lifetime with my French and American Adventure TV shows and my Saturday morning show.

“I hope to integrate these fabulous food experiences in to a tasty live show. I’ll be pulling together my favourite recipes and mixing in plenty of surprises and special guests in what I hope is going to be feast of a performance!”

He added: “It’s very important for me that we put on a show and a performance. It’s not just going to be me standing at an oven baking some bread!

“I had such great feedback from the first tour that I am determined to put all my energy into this one to make it even better.”

Martin will kick start the tour at the Grimsby Auditorium on October 3 and visit cities and towns including Hull, Preston, Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton and Cardiff, before ending in Harrogate on October 24.
