John Torode says “I am really thrilled and excited to be working with Lisa on our new show for ITV.  Our Weekend Kitchen will certainly be a great reflection of us working together on food and our style and chatting about things we love to do, made for Sunday morning viewing…”

Former EastEnders actress Lisa Faulkner added: “I am really looking forward to working with John and I am delighted that we have been asked to make a programme together for ITV.  It’s a lovely series to be asked to present and even better that we get to share some of our favourite recipes and ideas with the viewers. I know we are going to have a lot fun making it.”

ITV Daytime executive producer and commercial executive Sue Walton said the couple’s “natural talent and chemistry together will ensure a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds, as well as achievability for viewers with the recipes”.

‘Our Weekend Kitchen’ is the latest new weekend daytime commission by the network which recently announced ‘The Sara Cox Show’ which will replace Zoe Ball on Saturday and Zoe Ball on Sunday.
