Saturday Morning and Islands to Highlands host James Martin has slammed complaints from viewers, who accused him of flouting social distancing rules during the coronavirus pandemic. The chef was criticised by some fans of his ITV show James Martin’s Saturday Morning, who didn’t realise the episodes had been filmed before guidelines were put in place by the Government.
James branded the reaction “pathetic” and explained he tends to ignore feedback to his shows.
In an interview with The Sun's TV Mag, he said: “People didn’t realise and it all kicked off.
"It would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic. I can’t be a**ed with them, and I don’t even respond to them.”
The star went on to add he aims to give his “very best” while hosting his shows.
