On Saturday, James Martin was back to host his ITV cooking show, Saturday Morning. He invited a number of celebrity guests on to the show including the likes of Steps singer Faye Tozer and celebrity chefs Ryan and Liam Simpson-Trotman. The presenter also answered some of his viewer’s cooking questions. However, as he was demonstrating how to make the perfect scrambled eggs for one caller, James took a moment to pay a tribute to his former colleague, Michel Roux Sr, who taught him how to make the dish.
Legendary French chef Michel Sr died after battling a long-term lung condition.
He had appeared on James’ cooking show in the past, and he even made an appearance one month before he died.
Over the years Michel Sr also regularly made appearances on Saturday Kitchen Live with James and Matt Tebbutt.
As James began to demonstrate how to make the dish, he paid a tribute to his pal.
