James Martin, 48, who has appeared on TV screens for 28 years, often attracts a flurry of comments on social media, but confessed he rarely reads them. The chef is put off particularly by negative remarks that people write and now has a social media manager to respond.
They've already made an assumption
When asked if he reads messages from his followers, James responded: "No! It comes down to the fact I can't be a***d.
“If people don't like you, they've already made an assumption whether they don't like you.
“No comment from me is ever going to do that.
“That's why I have a lady called Cara who looks after my social media now,” he added to Hello! magazine.

James recalled a time he trended on Twitter after making remarks about Fireman Sam.
He continued: “Last time I had too many gin and tonics and said about Fireman Sam, next minute I was the front page of the newspaper and trending on social media.
“When I woke up in the morning they went, 'My God, what have you done?' I went, 'I don't know, I posted it about 11 o'clock p****d in a bar'."
The incident came after James tweeted his outrage that the character Fireman Sam had been dropped as the mascot for the Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service.
James insists that he always has time to speak with the most
