CELEBRITY CHEF: Lorraine Pascale

CELEBRITY CHEF and former model Lorraine Pascale will replace Saturday Kitchen host James Martin after he leaves the popular food show this weekend.

Pascale and top chefs including Rick Stein, 'Greedy Italian' Gennaro Contaldo have been lined up to replace Martin following his departure from Saturday Kitchen.

Yorkshire born Martin, 43, has hosted the BBC weekend breakfast show for a decade, and presents his last episode this weekend, where viewers will decide whether he faces his own food heaven or hell, butter or horseradish.

From April, a variety of chefs will take the role on a weekly rotation, each hosting a single episode.

James will continue to host Saturday Kitchen Best Bites on BBC Two Sunday mornings.

Other chefs named as hosts include Ching-He Huang, Matt Tebbutt and John Torode.
