James Martin’s Christmas Day: Location

  • James’ festive show is held at his actual house

According to ITV, James is inviting viewers round to his house for the show.

While some cooking shows are known to be filmed in house-like locations, that appear like the chef’s homes, his Christmas Day show is the real deal.

It is unknown exactly where James currently lives, but it appears to be a country village surrounded by flowery shrubs and fields.

Until 2019, James lived in Stoke Charity, a village in Hampshire, which is located six miles from Winchester.

When was the Christmas special filmed?

  • At the time of writing, it is not known exactly when James Martin’s Christmas Day was filmed

The announcement of his festive show was made on November 12, with a full plan, so it is likely it was filmed beforehand or around that time.

One fan commented on James’ Instagram post on November 14, saying: “It’s only 14th November and you have your tree up.”

So, perhaps this was put up in order to pre-film the Christmas Day show!

He posted an Instagram on November 12, the day of the James Martin’s Christmas Day announcement.

The post showed that his tree was up for a week of James Martin’s Saturday Kitchen shows. It’s likely he would have done all filming in the same week!

It is the first time ever that James Martin’s Christmas Day will air, which will be a 2-hour long episode!
