James Martin, 47, was joined on the ITV cooking show with football legend Chris Kamara, 61, as well as chefs Tony Tobin and Lesley Waters. It wasn’t long before chaos ensued after the former Brentford player had everyone on set in a fit of giggles.

During the show, the TV chef revealed he would be cooking a vegetarian meal for his guests but football pundit Chris couldn’t get his head around the name of the dish.

James said: “I’m going to do a little dish – a vegetarian dish. But this is Celeriac.”

He then turned to the football legend and asked: “You, until today have never heard of this dish before?”

Chris replied: “No, I thought Celiac was someone who couldn’t drink cider.”
