James Martin back in action

James also recently showed fans a sneak peak of his new Saturday Morning show.

He revealed that ITV bosses have given him the green light to start filming again.

Filming on many TV shows was halted due to the pandemic, as it was difficult to put them together and maintain social distancing.

Pubs, restaurants, hairdressers, cinemas and theme parks have reopened with strict social distancing rules.

But ministers have urged caution and England’s chief medical officer said the latest step was not “risk-free”.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak welcomed the reopening of businesses.

He said it was “good news” people are working again.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged people to act responsibly.

Meanwhile Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the Daily Mail people were entitled to have a good time at pubs.

But he added that people who start fights or cause other disorder “could end up behind bars”.

Outdoor gyms, libraries and funfairs are some of the other leisure sites also now open.
