Jamie Oliver’s eldest child is set to land his own cooking show on the BBC, following his dad’s culinary career.

It’s been reported the 12-year-old will be showing and teaching children how to cook in a brand-new series.

The programme comes in light of his popular YouTube series Cooking Buddies, which has an impressive 133,000 subscribers.

According to a source, the young chef will be presenting the show solo without relying on his dad’s famous name to gain popularity.

Speaking to The Sun, about the reported show, the source said: “He’s already had great success with content on YouTube and Instagram.

“Jamie’s fans have long been asking for his son to have his own show for their kids to enjoy.”

As Buddy will give tips and tricks to those beginning their cooking journey, tasty and healthy recipes are to be expected.

Express.co.uk has contacted the BBC which declined to comment at this stage.

The source added: “Buddy’s got to showcase his technical skills and presenting ability. But if his YouTube work is anything to go by, it’ll be natural for him.”

It’s said that Jamie is keen for Buddy to prove himself in the cooking world and make a name for himself as he’s said in the past.

Speaking to MailOnline earlier this year, the 48-year-old revealed his eldest has developed his cooking skills by practising.

He said: “When he was 10, and you can find this online, he filleted a mackerel.

“It’s not because he’s a special kid, it’s because kids are brilliant and when they repeat things a few times, they get good at it.”

This wouldn’t be the first child from a cooking star to follow in their parent’s footsteps either.

Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Matilda, known as Tilly, had her own show on CBBC called Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch.

First airing in 2015, the show ran for four years with the first series following Tilly and her family on their summer holidays.

Will Buddy Oliver be the next celebrity child chef following in his dad’s success?
