BBC Saturday Kitchen—

Olly is a regular drinks presenter on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen, selecting great value supermarket drinks to match with the dishes cooked by top chefs live in the studio.

Olly was back in the BBC Saturday Kitchen studio (virtually!) on Saturday 3rd April with host Matt Tebbutt, chefs Gennaro Contaldo and Shivi Ramoutar and special guest Mel Giedroyc.
