We’ve never really thought about it, but if anyone could teach us how to make the perfect scrambled eggs, we would want it to be Sir Ian McKellen!

He posted a short video tutorial to his Facebook, where he narrates how to cook the perfect eggs.

He cooks them up in celebration of his new film Mr Holmes.

“You’re lucky, because these are the best scrambled eggs in the world,” he said in the clip.

“And like all good recipes it’s a family one – it comes from my stepmother, Gladys.”
