In view of his 710,000 followers, James uploaded a video where he said he would be joining Chris Evans on Virgin Radio today.

He began: “Hi guys, I’m in London. I’m just about to speak to Mr Chris Evans in a minute to talk about butter.

“But I’m going to talk about a brand new project that I’m about to launch.”

James continued: “We are going to tell you about it in the next half an hour.

“I’ve been working on the project for a year now. It’s an exciting project, an iconic project.

“It’s the biggest thing I’ve done in recent years.

“I’m chuffed to bits to tell you right now that we’re about to get cracking on with it.”

Speaking on Virgin Radio, James shared that he has joined forces with Albert Bartlett to launch Spudulike.

The baked potato brand first opened in 1974 and the ITV favourite has since taken over by offering tasty recipes and mouth-watering toppings.

Spudulike previously had fifty outlets across the United Kingdom in 2001, including twenty franchises.

A total of 37 Spudulike sites closed when the chain went into administration in August 2019.

Fans flooded the TV chef’s post with tweets following James’ big announcement.
