The revival of Ready Steady Cook has some of us feeling a bit nostalgic and none more so than one of the show’s former chefs, James Martin.

The celebrity chef took to Instagram to show fans that he found his old Ready Steady Cook uniform… and it still fits.

“I found it and bloody hell it still fits! Stay safe all,” he captioned the video, wearing his old uniform whilst making pasta to some loud Rolling Stones playing in the background.

And of course, fans are absolutely loving it with legions of them taking to the comments.

One fan wrote: “You’ve just brought back so many memories of me watching ready steady cook with my late Nan. Thank you.”

While another added: “OMG that has made my evening.”

This Morning’s Dr Zoe Williams commented: “Yesssssss! The programme that taught me to cook.”

While actress Martine McCutcheon added: “Go on James!"

The 47-year-old chef has an exciting new project in the works due to come out later this year for fans to look forward to.

The Islands to Highlands book and series will be a “celebration of the unique food of the British Isles sees James travel from islands to Highlands, cooking and eating everywhere from Cornwall to Scilly, Jersey and Guernsey, Isle of Man to Shetland, the Peak District, Lake District and Yorkshire Moors, and from Wales to Skye”.

The book is available to preorder on Amazon now.
