James Martin may have been looking a little worse for wear for his appearance on This Morning today - and we can’t say we blame him!

The TV chef has recently launched a new menu at his Chewton Glen restaurant, situated in a stunning country house hotel complete with incredible tree houses on the outskirts in Hampshire. And it sounds like it’s going down a storm with diners - leaving James feeling “knackered” after an extremely busy shift.

Restaurants may not have been open for a while, but it sounds like James and the team had their work cut out for them with a busy service from start to finish yesterday.

Sounds like it’s worth a visit to us!

Fans were quick to comment on James’ snap, voicing their approval.

A third commented with, ‘You're forgiven for being knackered James it's been a full on week since you opened and it's great to see that you are fully booked and that the new menu is going down a storm too. Have a G&T and a cigar when you get home to relax. Big love fella to you and the team xx’

Another cheekily wrote, ‘Looking very good mr m!’

We’re obviously not the only ones with a crush on Mr. Martin…
