A range of incentives have catapulted into our lives as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, from Morrisons supermarket launching a food box service for those unable to secure deliveries, to mums sharing hacks for making DIY hand sanitiser and face masks.

As well as this, food has been at the forefront of our minds, and a national desire to rustle up some tasty dishes with all of the extra time at home we have on our hands.

Cue the Naked Chef, Jamie Oliver, who has returned to our screens on Channel 4 to help Britain out in this time of crisis, like the Vera Lynn of cooking!

The show, which is named Keep Cooking and Carry On and is airing every night at 5:30pm and 8:30pm this week.

The programme has come together in record time and focuses on recipes you can make from home with a limited amount of fresh products – and people are loving it!

One fan tweeted: "Well done @jamieoliver#KeepCookingCarryOn This show looks like its going to have some fab ideas to spice up meals over the comming weeks by using whats in our kitchens already. Must say I’ve always done my Veggi Chilli that way (well minus potato) – nailed it." [sic]

"Jamie Oliver is a National Treasure and I won’t hear otherwise," another added.

The 44-year-old chef will also be showing viewers how to make bread in the 30 minute episodes.

In a statement, Jamie said of the show: "Cooking nutritious meals for yourself and your loved ones has never been more important."

The recipes can also be found on the Jamie Oliver website, and along with your daily dose of Jamie, you can also delve into Joe Wicks' live PE lessons to keep fit during self-isolation.

Joe, aka The Body Coach, announced last week that he would be holding a live PE session every day at 9am for all children being homeschooled, encouraging parents to tune in and get up and moving.

Jamie Oliver's programme is going out on Channel 4 at 5:30pm and 8:30pm, and the next episodes will be shown on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
