James Martin walks off This Morning set as Holly Willoughby jokes about his meat

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

James Martin was left with his head in his hands before he walked off the This Morning set on Monday, after a joke about meat.

The television chef had already presented a segment for a luscious lemon drizzle cake, but Holly Willoughby seemed more excited to hear about pork crackling.

And while James, 48, is known for his dry humour and humorous tantrums on the show, it seems Holly's meat jab was a little too much.

As Holly, 40, and co-host Phillip Schofield, 58, laughed, James could be seen with his head in his hands.

Phil got in on the joke too, laughing as he said James was a piece of meat.

In the next shot though, viewers watched as he walked off-set and out of the studio kitchen, leaving Holly and Phil to get on with it.

Earlier in the episode, Holly had scolded James for "ruining" her excited moment, in which she spoke about her happiness of kids going back to school.

As she spoke about how the house was now silent, as opposed to full of her children's questions and home-schooling demands, James set a food processor going.

The loud buzzing interrupted Holly, who laughed as she told James off for "ruining" the moment.

James is no stranger to some awkward moments on This Morning though, so Monday's events were nothing new.

Last year, back in November, on one particular day a number of things went wrong – and kept going wrong – for him.

He was making cheese straws and a cauliflower soup, but it just wasn't his day.

The chef put the ingredients for his winter warmer in a blender, but within seconds the mixture exploded out of the top and all over the surfaces as he'd failed to put the lid on properly, leaving Holly and Phil in stitches.

He complained about the director "in his ear" telling him he was running out of time, before shouting about the "state" of the kitchen.

Phil upset him further when he referred to the "brown skid mark" that had been swirled into the soup, asking him what it was.

Even though Phil said it was "amazing", James refused to tell him.

The moment was so funny that it was even shared on Gogglebox days later, with the Channel 4 stars having a laugh at James' mishaps too.
