James Martin's scrambled eggs masterclass

It was nearly 30 years ago a young James Martin stepped into our TV kitchens, so to celebrate we have an 'anniversary cook', as James throws it back to one his first live TV cooks on The Big Breakfast, when he cooked up a masterclass in scrambled eggs.

He's back all these years later with his famous scrambled eggs for a special throwback!
