Ant and Dec, Susan Sarandon and Taron Egerton among the stars joining Jamie and Jimmy for a Friday Night Feast
Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty are back with a new series of Friday Night Feast, welcoming a variety of famous faces into the kitchen. Over 11 weeks, stars from the worlds of film, TV, comedy and sport join the boys in their new-look, pop-up bistro at the end of Southend Pier to create a mouth-watering feast to kick-off the weekend.
Hollywood royalty Susan Sarandon, Rocketman actor Taron Egerton and three-time Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan will be cooking up a storm alongside Jamie and Jimmy, with Taron Egerton featuring in a Christmas special to air in December.
TV favourites Ant and Dec and Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia Winkleman will also be showing off their foodie credentials in the end-of-pier bistro, along with former Spice Girl Mel B and comedians Joe Lycett, Rob Beckett and Jack Dee.
Disproving the adage ‘too many cooks’, queen of all-things culinary Mary Berry joins Jamie and Jimmy to create the ultimate cookery masterclass, while world champion boxer Amir Khan hopes to prove he can handle the heat of the kitchen.
Each episode, Jamie and Jimmy chat to their guests about their love of food and their favourite meals, as well as grilling them with questions from diners in ‘Spill the Beans’. Jamie and Jimmy will also be back out on the road in their Ford Capri to experience culinary delights around the UK, in addition to rustling up delicious recipes themselves, from easy snacks to full-on feasts - the perfect way to start the weekend.
The new series of Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast begins on Channel 4 this December with a Christmas Feast.
