Chris Martin made the revelation on Jo Whiley’s BBC Radio 2 show on Thursday, insisting he’s only cooked on two occasions in the past decade. The 44-year-old reviewed how his last effort to prepare dinner wound up transforming into a debacle after getting distracted by working on a song at his home in North London, only to remember a while later, he had a whole pot of pasta on the stove. 

“I’ve cooked twice in the last 10 years and both times the Fire Brigade came

“I’m not a great cooked,” he admitted. 

“I’ve cooked twice in the last 10 years and both times the fire brigade came and I’d like to send a shout out to them in North London Fire Department who’ve saved me twice.

“The second time they came and said ‘have you been cooking again?’”

When Jo quizzed the Grammy winner on what he had burnt, he responded: “Um, pasta and toast because I said I’d cook dinner.

“But then I got distracted and went to work on a song and then forgot until, anyway!”

Furthermore, Chris discussed his upcoming Christmas plans subsequent to flying back to London to be with his family for the festive holidays.

When asked whether he was amped up for Christmas, the Coldplay lead singer joked that his partner, actress Dakota Johnson, and ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, are the ones who do all the preparation while he pays “for what I’m told to pay for”.

For Christmas Eve, though, Chris detailed how he continues to follow his family tradition in making sure Santa Claus has all of his snacks lined up, which he has since replaced with pastry and alcohol. 

“The routines I have are the ones I had when I was like seven,” he said. 

“I make sure that Santa or Father Christmas as we call him, that the access is good for him and all clear and he’s got the right snacks and stuff lined up… 

“Nowadays I leave some sort of pastry goods and a glass of something with alcohol in it and always he eats it and drinks it and also he often leaves footprints if we happen to be somewhere with a fireplace, often in the morning he’s left a footprint.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the Paradise chart-topper announced that Coldplay will release their 10th and final studio album in 2025, marking the band’s 25th anniversary as a four-piece. 

The rock band, which consists of Chris, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, Will Champion and Phil Harvey, have decided to stop making music once they wrap production on their final offering. 

But Chris assured fans that Coldplay would continue to tour; they just don’t have any desire to continue recording albums after reaching their 25-year milestone. 

“Well I know I can tell you, our last proper record will come out in 2025 and after that, I think we will only tour.

“Maybe we’ll do some collaborative things, but the Coldplay catalogue, as it were, finishes then.”

Chris helped form the group back in 1996 before releasing their debut studio album, Parachutes, in July 2000. 

The project spawned a handful of hits, including Yellow, Shiver, Trouble and Don’t Panic, while also scooping up the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2002.

In October, Coldplay released their ninth album, Music of the Spheres, to rave reviews from critics who praised the band for taking on a new sound with the help of world-renowned music producer Max Martin.
