"Saturday Kitchen Live" is a cookery programme presented by James Martin. A regular segment is Heaven or Hell, where Martin creates a dish at the end of the show using ingredients either beloved or loathed by a well-known face. Another regular feature is the Omelette Challenge, where two chefs go head to head to cook an omelette in the shortest time possible. The programme also features a wine-tasting element and includes clips of food shows from the BBC archive featuring the likes of Keith Floyd, Rick Stein and Delia Smith. The series started life on BBC Two in January 2002 when the then relatively unknown Gregg Wallace was the presenter. Wallace was replaced by Antony Worrall Thompson in 2003 when the programme switched to BBC One. Worrall Thompson jumped ship in 2006 when he joined rival cookery programme "Saturday Cooks!" on ITV. Martin became the new presenter from 2006.
