Matt Tebbutt takes thinly-veiled swipe at James Martin after bullying claims

BBC Breakfast: Naga Munchetty warns Matt Tebbutt to ‘be careful’

TV chef Matt Tebbutt took to Instagram on Friday afternoon to share a comical video of himself baking with his co-star Michaela Jane Bowles as they prepared for this weekend’s edition of Saturday Kitchen.

In the clip, Michaela moaned: “Once again, it’s mess, mess,” as Matt could be seen shaking a pan on the hob.

As a chuckling Matt prepared the bake in the background, Michaela scolded him once again saying: “Be careful because you’re going to get sugar all over my hob.”

In the caption, the 49-year-old shared a string of laughing emojis with the caption: “Is this bullying in the workplace?”

The thinly veiled swipe at James Martin didn’t go unnoticed by some of his 97k followers, with Andrew joking: “On a scale of what, zero to James Martin?”

Lesley added: “I don’t think either you or James would bully anyone so need for the comment really. Have fun tomorrow x.”

While Holly quipped: “And there’s me thinking you didn’t need to rehearse as everything runs smoothly on a Saturday.”

And Katya laughed: “That’s nothing compared to the rollickings I get Matt!”

It comes after James returned to social media after he was hit by “bullying” accusations by some members of his crew.

He addressed a leaked audio of himself ranting at staff after an incident filming James Martin’s Saturday Morning in 2018.

In the clip, the chef could be heard swearing 42 times as he was left furious over a drain which was blocked at his home.

Sharing a statement on Instagram, the 51-year-old explained: “I would like to publicly and sincerely apologise to the crew involved in this incident, as I did at the time.

“… The end of 2017 was one of the most fraught and difficult periods of my life. I was dealing with the death of my last living grandparent, my grandfather, and on account of work commitments, I could not attend his funeral.”

He added that his home was burgled later that month while his partner Louise was there alone. He was also diagnosed with cancer for which he had to have surgery and regular treatment.

“I was in a very emotional state, and when after filming in early January 2018 I discovered my home had been flooded while filming, I was extremely upset.

“I can only say I am human and following a build-up of personal life pressure, I admit that I overreacted regarding the damage to my home,” he concluded.
