James Martin sparked concerns about his health after sharing a cryptic post on Instagram today. The 50-year-old chef uploaded a picture of his dog Ralph followed by an MRI suite as he told fans he may need an operation as well. 

Alongside the two snaps, the chef wrote: “Seems as if we are both getting old fella!

“Dropped hi off for an op this morning, now it seems I need one.”(sic)

Following fans’ concerns, he has since issued an update in view of his 701,000 followers.

He wrote: “Thank you for all your messages, very kind. Ralph is ok and out and on the mend cheers.

“Me on the other hand, well we will see.”

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for James for comment. 

Ahead of the update, many of his fans rushed to the comments section to send their well wishes.

Callsopp52 wrote: “Hope it’s nothing serious for either of you James.”

Sharon Vale commented: “Wishing Ralph a speedy recovery. Hope all goes well with you too.”

Karensalisburybraiden added: “We need to see more of your pooches on your TV show. Hope the operation goes well.”

Strictlyhooked typed: “Hope nothing too serious for both of you.”

James’ dog is no stranger to his fans.

The Lhasa Apso stole the show when he cheekily interrupted his live cooking segment last year. 

James was midway through cooking and interviewing singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti on his programme when Ralph took a liking to his steak recipe.

At first, a noise could be heard behind the counter, which prompted the chef to explain what it was.

The host then picked up his pet pooch as he told viewers: “Whenever I’m doing this at home we’ve got this little fella over here.”

He went on to allow his dog to smell the dish as he joked: “Ralph-y look at that! Do you want that or should I give that to Jack?”

Jack went on to laugh as James also suggested his dog deserved the dish more than his guest.

The chef is also the proud owner of a cocker spaniel called Cooper.

James Martin’s Saturday Morning continues this weekend at 9.30am on ITV.
