The chef shared this snap from his restaurant

It's been two weeks since James proudly reopened one of his restaurants – The Kitchen at Chewton Glen in Hampshire – and it seems business is busy than ever! "I literally am working seven days a week," James told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on Monday's This Morning. "I did 104 hours this week hence the hair and the beard's a bit of a mess so I do apologise. I'm literally, as soon as I finish this with you I'm back for service this afternoon and tonight."

"I'm working seven days in the restaurant and it's going great guns," he added. Ruth then asked whether customers were not turning up after making a booking, to which, James replied: "Fortunately a few times but not to the extent of some of the other people I have heard about as well.

"The worst case scenario is that my friend had 96 people booked for lunch and only four turned up. So 90 odd people didn't even turn up. You can imagine running a business like that. It's very difficult in the hardest times."
