"Food became such a massive issue, so I genuinely felt we were performing a public service and I am immensely proud of what we achieved. As the country was running out of ingredients, we wanted to help viewers find simple alternatives and fixes - so turning each episode round quickly was really important."

Crediting his family and the team, Jamie concluded: "Making a whole series on mine and Jools' phone - with my wife turned camerawoman - was brilliant but also chaos at times. But I had an amazing crew working remotely to cut the show together in record time. A massive thank you to all. #tvtimesawards2020 #keepcookingcarryon."
