The food writer, 46, is the eldest child of Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, who is married to Prince Charles. Tom and his sister Laura Lopes are both children from Camilla’s previous marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles. A well-known foodie, Tom has demonstrated his skills in the kitchen in a string of TV appearances over the years, such as BBC2’s ‘MasterChef: The Professionals’.
Prince Charles’ step-son also penned several cookbooks, including ‘The Cook Book’ for the Fortnum & Mason department store, which has long been associated with the Royal Family.
He returns to the BBC this morning for a new episode of ‘Saturday Kitchen’ with Matt Tebbutt.
The TV chef also welcomes comedian John Bishop, food writer Georgina Hayden and wine expert Olly Smith.
The year after Tom’s ‘MasterChef’ appearance, he and his wife, fashion writer Sara, separated.
The couple had “problems” for “some time”, according to an unearthed report by The Sun from 2018.

The newspaper quoted a source close to Tom and Sara, who tied the knot in 2005 and have two children together.
They said: “They are being very clear the separation is not final and they are not getting divorced.
“There is no one else involved.
“The concern of both Tom and Sara is for the stability and happiness of their children.”
The paper reported that Tom had left the home the couple shared together and had moved into a rented property in West London.
Despite their separation, the pair did still attend the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle together in 2018.
In March of this year, Tom’s girlfriend, former journalist Alice Procope, died of cancer, aged 42.
Tom was reported to be “devastated” by her death, which came after the couple were together for almost two years.
A friend of Tom’s told the Daily Mail that he had been “blissfully happy” in his relationship with Ms Procope.
Tom was born in 1974 to Camilla and Andrew Parker Bowles, who decided to divorce in 1995.

Charles, whose own divorce with Princess Diana was finalised the following year, had been having a highly publicised on-off affair with Camilla.
Camilla and Charles’ romance drew major controversy in 1993, when newspapers published the transcript of an intimate conversation between the pair.
Tom opened up about the scandal – dubbed ‘Camillagate’ – in a 2014 interview.
Speaking to the Times, Camilla’s son said: “I sort of remember not looking at the paper.
“Because, you know, Jesus, the things that we’ve all said to people that we love … that you wouldn’t want the world reading.
“I just felt p***** off. I wasn’t going to read that sort of stuff about my mother, just as much as she wouldn’t want to read it about me or my kids certainly wouldn’t want to read it about me.”
Several years after Charles and Camilla’s divorces, and Diana’s death in 1997, they eventually married at a small ceremony in 2005.
‘Saturday Kitchen’ is on BBC One from 10am-11:30am.
