Jamie Oliver's son Buddy has reportedly landed his own cooking show.

The celebrity chef's 12-year-old boy is set to follow in his famous dad's footsteps with his own culinary programme on the BBC teaching other kids how to recreate delicious recipes after the success of his YouTube series 'Cooking Buddies'.

A source told The Sun newspaper's TVBiz column: "Buddy has taken all of his dad’s experience on board and is about to put it into play with his own cookery show.

“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."

Buddy - who has an impressive 133,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel - will be joined by other kids as he teaches them how to rustle up the dishes.

The insider added: “The series will see Buddy joined in the kitchen by other children as he teaches recipes and gives helpful tips to youngsters on how to get started with cooking.”

It's said the youngster will be flying solo for the project rather than relying on his famous father.

The source said: "Buddy is the star of the show. Jamie is keen for his son to prove himself to telly audiences, not just live off the family name.

"So 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.”

Meanwhile, the Naked Chef Jamie recently returned with new four-part Channel 4 series 'Jamie Cooks The Mediterranean', which follows his travels across Greece, Tunisia, Spain and France as he explores a range of flavours and styles to inspire new recipes.

Tim Hancock - commissioning editor for Channel 4 - previously said: “Jamie has been going from strength to strength in his series for us, and this is a really beautiful travelogue showcasing techniques and recipes even the most avid foodie might have missed, and some ingenious recipes from Jamie."
