    Saturday Kitchen Live star Matt Tebbutt confessed his voice had taken a beating before making an exciting announcement.

    The presenter, 49, discussed what was coming up during Saturday's (November 4) instalment of his BBC cooking programme with Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty. The duo were back at the helm of the latest instalment of BBC Breakfast and handed over to the TV chef, who teased what viewers could expect from his show.

    Asked if he's well, Matt sounded slightly hoarse as he responded: "I am. I'm losing my voice a bit but apart from that I'm fine." Naga, 48, replied: "Well I think you have an accomplished broadcaster with you who can always help you out, who has a rather good voice."

    The BBC host questioned whether he needed to put more effort in due to the guest sat beside him. But Naga insisted: "I've seen Clive off air and he's fine."

    Welcoming his guest, Matt told viewers: "Breaking news, our special guest today is the wonderful Clive Myrie." Alongside Helen McGin, Matt confessed to the newsreader how much they loved his new book, Everything Is Everything, which centres around his upbringing, career, family and the Windrush Generation.

    The broadcaster replied: "Everyone loves my mum in that book. It's all about my mum." Clive is one of the corporations most respected figures, however, he revealed he never watched the BBC growing up as his family thought it was "too posh, too poncey" and "didn't have any black people on it."

    He told the Radio Times: "ITV had Big Trev [McDonald]. It was more human the way ITV did the news. I hope the BBC has now got to that level, but in those days it was like handing down tablets of stone, 'This is public service broadcasting, these are your greens'.

    "Whereas ITV was like, 'Let's stick a bit of chocolate cake in there'." The 59-year-old said his parents, who moved to the UK from Jamaica in the 60s, were "disappointed" with his chosen career path.

    "My parents left the life that they knew in Jamaica – beautiful, hot, sandy beaches – for a cold and sometimes inhospitable place," he explained. "They didn't do that for their kids to grow up to be bums.

    "They wanted doctors, dentists, accountants – proper jobs! They were initially disappointed, especially as I'd got a place at Middle Temple to be a barrister."
