It was great to get the opportunity to work with Mark Shardlow, a highly professional BBC presenter and broadcaster, to showcase a healthy, marathon runners take on Christmas Dinner.

A big thank you also to Kev Seaward & Heather Timmins for being such great sports, Elf Foods for some great ingredients, Meridian Foods for specialist, high quality nut and seed butters & Nick for getting rid of the chunks.

The filming was split across two nights on BBC East Midlands – both parts below. For the recipe, please click here
