Sam announced that he was taking part in BBC2 show on Instagram. He wrote: “When I was growing up I often used to watch [Great British Menu] after school. I don’t know whether 12 year old me was necessarily their target audience, but seeing amazing chefs like Jeremy Lee, Angela Hartnett and Stephen Terry in action really showed me that cooking was an actual job that I could actually do.
“If you had told me back then that in 2022 that I would be competing for the North West in Great British Menu I would have been seriously baffled.
