James Martin leaves fans in tears as he tells ‘TV dad’ he loves him after health update

James Martin has left fans in tears after telling his 'TV dad' Brian Turner that he loves him following the chef's health update.

The 76 year old appeared on ITV's James Martin's Saturday Morning, where he spoke about a stroke he suffered in June 2022.

James, who recently shared peak inside his stunning country home, kicked off the show as he said: "First of all you want to say thank you to the camera, because you've not been well recently."

He then pointed towards the camera so Brian could turn his attention to it. The Ready Steady Cook chef then shared: "Yeah, well unfortunately I had a stroke in June last year and the people at the London hospital were fantastic and helpful."

"So excuse me if I make a stammer occasionally, but we will catch up at the end," he continued, as James, 55, replied: "It's OK, it's OK. I love you fella," before referring to him as his 'TV dad'.

He added: "Round of applause for the people who have been looking after you and it's a pleasure to have you back!"

Fans were left in tears over the exchange as they flocked to Twitter to share their well wishes. One person wrote: "Wishing you a speedy recovery Brian. Last time I saw you was with your prodigy James Martin on his tv show. You always put a smile on my face, and that’s not easy.Take care." followed by two pink heart emojis.

Another confessed they'd been left crying as they said: "Don’t think I have ever been in tears on a James Martin Saturday show before… moved beyond words for the total love and friendship you share. Keep well Brian. Xx".

"I'm watching with tears in my eyes. Warmed to my heart to see how James is so caring to him," a third posted.

While a fourth added: "So so lovely to see Brian back with his TV son. Those man hugs made me tear up! All the best to you Chef Turner."

James later took to his own social media account to share an update from Brian as he posted a photo of them in the kitchen from their show together before writing: "Wow, well what can we both say just had Brian on the phone, ended in both us in tears at the amazing messages and support from you all…

"he wanted me to tell you all out there “thank you” for all of them!"

It comes after James recently sparked concern after sharing he was in hospital to get an MRI scan and will need an operation.

The star shared a post to Instagram, in which he revealed that his dog, Ralph, was also getting an operation, as he posted a snap of the pooch and a shot of the MRI Suite sign in the hospital.

He captioned the post: "Seems as if we are both getting old fella! Dropped him off for an op this morning, now it seems I need one."

James didn't disclose what was actually wrong with him, but naturally his post sparked concern amongst his fans, who rushed to post their well-wishes in the comments section.

One person wrote: "Hope it’s nothing serious for either of you James," whilst another commented: "MRI??? Ohh blimey. Is that for you or Ralph. What’s going on???"

A third wrote: "Hope nothing too serious for both of you," as a fourth penned: "Goodness. Hope it’s not too serious for either of you."
