"And also, we're back filming Saturday Morning. We're back on Monday, all of next week. We'll have the new show hitting your screens in September."

But James definitely saved the best news for last – he's launching a new online shop to help suppliers who have been hard-hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

He teased: "A new thing I've been working on, it's taken months and months of planning, but we're nearly there. As you know I've been doing my best to help out so many different suppliers - fish, meat, veg, gardening – in this nightmare crisis we're all facing."

James went on to explain that instead of crashing the suppliers' websites, his team had been working 24/7 to create a dedicated space where he can connect the public with amazing kitchen essentials and top quality produce.

"It's a website shop that will enable you to get the produce delivered to your door, from fish to meat to gardening tools, to pans and pots. It's like a chef's larder. It's morphed into over 500 different items. We have Michelin-starred chefs making stuff for the shop too", he said.

"The money gets sent straight to them, I'm doing it to help and to keep them going until hopefully we're all back to normality. It'll give you the opportunity to buy the most amazing produce, delivered to your door!"

James' excited fans expressed their delight in the comment section, revealing they couldn't wait to see it go live. We'll be bookmarking the site too, that's for sure.
