Meanwhile, a third fan commented: "Thank God we've got you two to keep us laughing! Keep up the fantabulous work guys! Xx."

However, due to the implementation of the latest restrictions, it's not yet clear how content for future episodes will be filmed. The new measures, which come into effect in England from Thursday, state that households are not to mix both indoors and outdoors, with the exception of support bubbles.
