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.
It was Saturday Kitchen with a twist at the weekend! A Comic Relief special saw Olly and host Matt Tebbutt joined in the kitchen by a stellar line-up of celebrity guests and chefs.
Chefs Gennaro Contaldo, Bryn Williams and Paul A Young cooked up some amazing dishes for Clara Amfo, Ed Balls, Ore Oduba and Sophie Thompson. They were helped by Saturday Kitchen regular Jane Parkinson and joined by Comic Relief co-founder Richard Curtis and Emma Freud who revealed the final amount raised so far for Comic Relief 2019: A massive £63,938,072!
