Celebrity chef James Martin has been hard at work making pasta for his neighbours amid the coronavirus crisis.
The cook, 47, decided to do his bit for his village as food continues to fly off shelves in shops and supermarkets across the country.
He posted a short video on Twitter showing several bags of different sorts of pasta ready to be dished out.

“40kg done for the village and now for some more,” he wrote.
