Jamie Oliver’s son Buddy may be set to follow in his famous father’s footsteps, as the 12-year-old has reportedly landed his own cooking show.

The celebrity chef’s son will reportedly have his own culinary programme on the BBC teaching other children how to cook. 

It follows the success of Buddy’s YouTube series ‘Cooking Buddies’.

A source told The Sun newspaper’s TVBiz column: ‘Buddy has taken all of his dad’s experience on board and is about to put it into play with his own cookery show.

‘He’s already had great success with content on YouTube and Instagram. Jamie’s fans have long been asking for his son to have his own show for their kids to enjoy.’

Buddy – who has an impressive 133,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel – will be joined by other children as he teaches them how to rustle up the dishes.

The insider added: ‘The series will see Buddy joined in the kitchen by other children as he teaches recipes and gives helpful tips to youngsters on how to get started with cooking.’

It’s said the youngster will be flying solo for the project rather than relying on his famous father.

The source said: ‘Buddy is the star of the show. Jamie is keen for his son to prove himself to telly audiences, not just live off the family name.

‘So Buddy’s got to showcase his technical skills and presenting ability. But if his YouTube work is anything to go by, it’ll be natural for him.’

Jamie has previously spoken out about how despite his success, Buddy will not be a ‘nepo baby’, and will ‘earn his trade’ if he becomes a chef and won’t live off his father’s name.

The Essex native, who was once known as ‘The Naked Chef’, insists that should Buddy choose to follow in his footsteps, he will have a proper grounding just like him in order to make his rising star son a more complete chef. 

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline earlier this year, Jamie said: ‘The only way to do it, is to do it properly.

‘The technical and practical side of cooking is one thing, but the really interesting and emotional thing about cooking is serving people, immersing yourself with food growers and farmers – you can’t fake that.’ 

He continued: ‘When I ran the restaurant Fifteen, where most of our young people were unemployed, from prison or troubled backgrounds.

‘We put these kids in front of amazing farmers and artisans, fishermen and producers, that’s what changes you and I’d definitely do that with Buddy, if he wanted to go down that route. He would earn his trade for sure.’

Jamie added that Buddy’s cooking talents have developed because of sheer practice. He explained: ‘When he was 10, and you can find this online, he filleted a mackerel.

‘It’s not because he’s a special kid, it’s because kids are brilliant and when they repeat things a few times, they get good at it – whether it’s cricket, boxing or gymnastics.’

He continued: ‘He happened to have a mackerel in his hand, which is a cheap fish that’s bloody good for you, and he cooked it for his brother River, crispy skins 90 per cent of the way, and you can’t produce that content.

‘When I take him down the market on a Saturday, he’s had 70-year-old men saying, ‘I’ve never really been into your old man, but I saw you do that video and came here and brought mackerel.’

‘He has that effect on people, particularly the older generation. I’m really proud of him, he’s a good kid.’

Jamie and his wife Jools, 48, share five children Poppy, 21, Daisy, 20, Petal, 14 and River, six, as well as Buddy. 

Jamie recently returned with new four-part Channel 4 series ‘Jamie Cooks The Mediterranean’, which follows his travels across Greece, Tunisia, Spain and France as he explores a range of flavours and styles to inspire new recipes.

Tim Hancock – commissioning editor for Channel 4 – previously said: ‘Jamie has been going from strength to strength in his series for us, and this is a really beautiful travelogue showcasing techniques and recipes even the most avid foodie might have missed, and some ingenious recipes from Jamie.’
