James Martin: I looked like trash
JAMES MARTIN has revealed he feels like he ‘got his life back’ since quitting Saturday Kitchen.
The celebrity chef departed last year after a decade on the popular show, but he doesn’t regret his decision one bit.
‘Now I’m not working Saturday mornings, I feel like I’ve got my life back,’ he told Woman magazine.
He added: ‘Before I quit, I was working non-stop and my mates said, “You look like trash, you’ve got to stop.”
‘On screen I looked like I’d been out getting drunk the night before, but I was genuinely knackered.
‘It made me think, “I need to change my life.”‘
Earlier this month, James spoke about the catalyst for his departure being witnessing the death of a stranger.
‘He was my age and did a similar job,’ he said. ‘It shocked the hell out of me and I just thought, “I’ve done this for 10 years, I need a change.”‘
