Ant McPartlin has revealed that his TV presenting partner Declan Donnelly once phoned him to ask how to cook a tin of baked beans.

He was speaking during an appearance on Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast, which saw Jamie Oliver try to teach the pair how to cook Japanese food.

Ant told viewers that when they started living together in London, Dec “really didn’t have a clue” about how to cook.

He added: “He rang me once to say ‘what do I do with these baked beans?’

“He thought you had to cook them in the oven for like four hours at gas mark whatever.”

He also told viewers that Dec had another culinary mishap involving a knife when he was living a few doors down from him.

Ant said that Dec had phoned him to say: “Can you come round? There’s a lot of blood.”

Ant added: “We’d been out watching the football, we got back and he decided to make himself something to eat.

“He was slicing cherry tomatoes with a knife bigger than that and sliced into his finger.”

Dec said he has never learnt to cook because “there was always somebody there to do it”.

The pair also revealed that they did not eat any Japanese food while they were touring their music in the country.

Oliver told the duo that he “definitely” would not be able to stomach some of the food that contestants are tasked with eating on I’m A Celebrity.

He said: “I love offal and I love all the cuts of the meat but you guys have invented a new league of offal.”
