The presenter then helpfully responded to queries from fans with some advice about cooking during the pandemic.
One person questioned: “I think reducing food waste is top of the list in this house. Any tips on cooking enough rice for just the family instead of the entire West country like I usually do?”
The chef replied: “Scales. You need no more than 40-50g uncooked rice per person. Problem solved – next?”
Another fan enthusiastically suggested: “SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM.”
Agreeing with the idea, Simon wrote back: “Just been talking about that with my producer – spam burger!”
