To make his grilled cheese, Jamie explained that all you need is a couple of different types of cheese, bread, butter and an assortment of condiments.

The British star used cheddar cheese in his toastie, as well as red leicester – because they ‘melt nicely’.

First, you cut white bread into two slices and coat each slide of the bread with a generous helping of butter.

After cooking the bread on one side, Jamie added more cheese in the middle of the pan and turned the toastie over.

‘For perfection in the eating, you’ve got to leave it for two mins because inside that toastie the cheese is like a billion degrees celsius,’ he explained.

‘This is crispy, gooey, fluffy, golden perfection,’ he added.
