The Pet Show hosts Dermot O’Leary and Joanna Page sat down with the top TV chef last weekend to discuss life with his faithful canine companion. However, James Martin himself soon became the centre of attention as Joanna admitted she had often wondered what married life would be like with the Saturday Morning star. 

Last Sunday’s edition of the series returned from the break for its final part to reveal an awkward conversation that took place when the cameras weren’t rolling.

Co-presenter Dermot explained: “Before we go any further, during the break, Jo, from nowhere, said to James, ‘I have often wondered what it would be like to be married to you, James.’” 

Joanna is married to English actor James Thornton, while James has been in a relationship with long-term partner Louise Davies since 2011.

However, the TV chef couldn’t help but crack a smile as Joanna explained her confession.

“I’m not lying,” she admitted. “I have had the genuine thought of what [it would be like].” 

Dermot struggled to contain his laughter as James squirmed slightly before pressing for more answers. 

With raised eyebrows, The Pet Show guest demanded: “Many, or just one?” 

“I would say many, actually!” Joanna replied, prompting Dermot to put his head in his hand and laugh harder.

She continued: “I wonder what it would be like to be married to him?” 

Getting to the bottom of Joanna’s daydream, Dermot pressed his co-host: “In what context?”

“Well, food,” she said. “Would you just cook and cook and cook?”

It would certainly be a reasonable request, as James has been cooking on TV since 1996.

He took over as the host of Saturday Kitchen in 2006 and has now been presenting Saturday Morning with James Martin on ITV since 2017. 

Dermot looked to the cameras with some disbelief as the guest humoured the presenter’s confessional. 

“Would you just want to try it for the weekend?” James joked. 

The studio burst into laughter as Joanna exclaimed: “I would love to!”

“I would be there in a flash! Would I have my breakfast in bed?” 

When Dermot asked what married life would actually be like with James, the chef clarified: “Well, first of all, I’m not married.” 

However, he of course confirmed he cooks as much at home as he does in the ITV studio, much to Joanna’s delight. 

Finally, Joanna offered James: “Tell you what, give me a shout if you’re looking for a wife.”

The Pet Show airs Sundays at 5:30pm on ITV.
