Jamie Oliver is reportedly planning on tackling the cost of living crisis with a new series of Jamie’s £1 Wonders.
The celebrity chef is set to return to our screens and whipping up dishes from budget recipes, while offering money-saving cooking tips in a new season of the programme.
Jamie’s £1 Wonders first aired with a one-off episode in October last year, with the 47-year-old now returning for a six-part series, it has been reported.
And not only will he be plating up cheap meals for less than a pound per portion, the chef is said to be travelling around the world for ideas on making new cost-saving meals, as well as being joined by ‘guest cooks’.
A source revealed: ‘Jamie is really excited by the upcoming series.
‘He’ll be venturing outside of the UK, as well as domestically, travelling to countries including Sri Lanka, Canada, Italy and India for ideas on cost-saving food’.
The insider added to The Sun’s TV Biz column: ‘Guest cooks will be invited in too, so it will be a real collaboration’.

This comes after Jamie spoke about being ‘baffled’ over why young people aren’t in kitchens.
The father of Poppy, 20, Daisy, 19, Petal, 13, Buddy, 12, and River, six – who he shares with wife Jules – explained he only became good at cooking due to repetition.
Carving out a successful career that includes many books and TV shows, the professional chef claimed British children were missing out on the ‘happiness’ he enjoyed during his time at the stove.

‘I was good at cooking – not because I was born to do it or a genius but because I just did it again and again,’ he said.
‘I had a terrible time academically at school but I loved working at the weekend – learning to graft, learning to be tired, learning to earn a pound.

He added to the Radio Times: ‘I was blessed to work with seven chefs on a shift who all taught me how to do things and would whup me if I didn’t do them right.
‘It baffles me why British kids and people don’t want to work in kitchens. There’s a real happiness to be had.’
