‘I am so pleased that TV Times readers voted for our show. We actually started shooting a few days before lockdown – but when lockdown happened I knew we had to keep making the show.
‘Food became such a massive issue, so I genuinely felt we were performing a public service and I am immensely proud of what we achieved.
‘As the country was running out of ingredients, we wanted to help viewers find simple alternatives and fixes – so turning each episode round quickly was really important.
‘Making a whole series on mine and Jools’ phone – with my wife turned camerawoman – was brilliant but also chaos at times.
