Louis also revealed a look inside his home kitchen as he attempted to master his recipes ahead of joining The Great British Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer. It features grey cabinets, wooden floors, and chestnut wood worktops.

Louis' kitchen has a serving hatch

There's also a serving hatch that opens up on to the dining area. In a recent interview with Dazed where Louis touted the benefits of cooking as a stress release, he said, "Cooking is a way of dissipating nervous tension. I sometimes just make a marinara sauce."
