The low-key evening comes shortly after James announced he will be helping fans create a three-course meal during his first-ever virtual live cookery masterclass, Dine In With James Martin, on Saturday 3 October at 6:30pm.

Speaking of the 90-minute interactive class, James said: "This will be unlike anything I’ve ever done before as I’ll be beamed directly into people’s homes and while they will see what I'm doing, I’ll also be speaking to some people to see how they are getting on."

"I'll teach you some tips and tricks of the trade," he explained, adding: "Don't worry about being prepared, I'll let you know everything you need to know, and buy, and get in advance."
