Last month, Jason revealed his application to be a 'customer assistant' at the Tesco Wilmslow branch had been turned down.

At the time, he wrote on social media: "I applied 7 weeks ago when I thought, like everyone, it was basically wartime and it would require all hands on deck.

"‘Curtains’ got cancelled on the 16th & I applied on the 21st for quite a few jobs).

"I have since managed to fill my ‘spare time’ doing some volunteer driving."
