Leaked recording reveals James Martin swearing 42 times at TV crew in foul-mouthed rant

Leaked recording reveals James Martin swearing 42 times at TV crew in foul-mouthed rant

Martin told the TV staff to have their lunch break 'standing in the f***ing rain'

A leaked recording revealed James Martin swearing a whopping 42 times at a TV crew in a foul-mouthed rant.

Back in 2018, the TV chef launched into a 10-minute tirade at staff leading to reports now of him having ‘intimidating’ and ‘bullying’ behaviour on the set.

The recording was given to The Sun as Martin is accused of bullying the staff during this year’s filming of James Martin’s Spanish Adventure - which has sparked an internal investigation into his behaviour.

The leaked audio reveals Martin going off at staff during a tense 2018 Zoom call after the drain at his home was blocked while filming for the ITV's Saturday Morning with James Martin.

During the rant obtained by The Sun, Martin includes: “I am absolutely furious, beyond belief. It’s my home, it’s my house. It’s my f**ing house.

James Martin has revealed that he has cancer.

“Nobody listens, nobody f**king listens do they. I will not put up with this, this is b*llocks.

“A driveway that cost me £26,000 is f**ked because somebody put a load of oil in the f**king bin that’s now dripped everywhere and f**king ruined my driveway.”

He then added of his crew: “I’ll tell you what’s going to happen. You’re going to prep it up [the food, for filming] in a pissy little f**king van.

“You’re going to stand there in the f**king rain and get wet for lunch, that's what going to happen, because you're not having any of my chairs, f**k all.”

He adds; “No equipment, no seats, no benches, no trestle tables, nothing. No plates, nothing.”

James Martin swore 42 times in the lengthy rant.

In response to this audio, Martin ‘publicly and sincerely’ apologised to the crew involved.

He said: "The end of 2017 was one of the most fraught and difficult periods of my life. I was dealing with the death of my last living grandparent, my grandfather, and on account of work commitments I could not attend his funeral."

Also citing a burglary, he added: "On top of this I was then diagnosed with cancer on my face and I had to have surgery, which I couldn't do until two days before Christmas when we had finished filming. Since then it has returned on several occasions and I have to have regular treatments.

"After all this stress I was in a very emotional state, and when after filming in early January 2018 I discovered my home had been flooded while filming, I was extremely upset.

"I can only say I am human and following a build-up of personal life pressure, I admit that I overreacted regarding the damage to my home."

When approached for comment, Martin's production company, Blue Marlin Television, accepted responsibility for the incident.

In a statement to LADbible, they said: "An unfortunate incident occurred after filming James Martin's Saturday Morning in 2018 where James' home was badly damaged. Blue Marlin Television accepted responsibility. James was shocked by what had happened and on reflection acknowledges he responded emotionally, which he wholly regrets. James apologises for any offence or upset caused, as he did at the time to the crew involved.

"Following this and some issues filming James Martin’s Spanish Adventures, James and Blue Marlin Television agree that lessons have been learned which have been discussed with members of the team and with ITV.

"Blue Marlin Television and James Martin have taken on board ITV's recommendations and their sharing of best practice, and are in the process of fully implementing.

"Since the 2018 incident, Blue Marlin Television has continued to film over 500 shows at James’ home.

"Blue Marlin Television remains committed to ensuring the welfare of all those with whom they work is of the utmost priority."
