And now, it appears that we’ve been cooking our jacket potatoes wrong too.

Poppy O’Toole, a Michelin-trained chef turned ‘Potato Queen’ has taken to TikTok to tell us how we should be cooking our potatoes if we want to get the perfect crispy skin.

Poppy uploaded her video to TikTok account ‘poppycooks’ with the caption ‘A chef’s secrets to the perfect baked potato’.

قالت: “Everyone wants to know how I get the skin so crispy and I wish there was something chefy to it, but there really isn’t.

“All you need to do is poke a fork in, that’s going to let the moisturiser out that lets you get nice, crispy skin.

“Then you’re going to slather it up in vegetable oil, that’s also going to help get that crispiness in there.
