Viewers will get the chance to peek into Prue Leith's idyllic Cotswolds home when she hosts a new daytime cookery show from her own kitchen.

Dame Prue, 84, and her husband John Playfair will cook some of her favourite dishes and share their top kitchen hacks and culinary short-cuts from their stunning barn conversion in Moreton-in-Marsh. 

She said it will be a ‘simply delicious romp’ through the recipes she's been gathering over her 60 years in the culinary world.

“All in all Prue’s Cotswold Kitchen is about the things that matter to me in my dotage - family, friends, home, farm and food," she said.

"And I’m such an egotist, I’m looking forward to sharing them all with the world.”

Retired fashion designer Mr Playfair will also share some gems of wisdom about the couple's years of country living such as showing viewers how best to grow and harvest your own fruit and veg.

But colourful Dame Prue said she thinks he might even outshine her.

"He was so good and so natural on telly I think that there's a real danger he'll be the bloody star!" she joked.

In each episode, Prue will invite a special guest into her home to cook and share one of their own favourite recipes.

She said: "I'm allowed guests so I had both Sandi Toksvig and Alison [Hammond] and that was fun."

As they sit down to enjoy the dish around the family table, they will ‘chew the fat’ on everyday issues.

Prue will also showcase products made by food entrepreneurs from the Cotswolds as well as from around the UK.

Prue Leith’s Cotswold Kitchen is on ITV1 and ITVX from February 2024.
