James' transformation comes after he announced his new online shop to help suppliers who have been hard-hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

Sharing the news on Thursday, 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.
