The TV chef looked a little tense as he stocked up on food and drink ahead of New Year’s Eve.

He dressed down for his shopping trip, wearing a pair of denim jeans, white polo shirt and dark blue jacket. 

It comes after John was forced to explain to fans why he landed himself in hospital on Christmas Day. 

Taking to Twitter, John posted: “I really am ok everyone! Thank you, just took a tumble whilst out riding, and posted photo to thank the Docs, nurses and all at St Mary’s.”

It followed a previous tweet which read: “Thank you all for your kind wishes. I really am ok but a massive thank you to St Mary’s & the NHS for everything #stmaryshospitalpaddington.”

The presenter, 51, was left “very bruised” after the incident, which resulted in him being taken to hospital.

His girlfriend, Lisa Faulkner, shared a snap of the Australian star in a hospital bed. 

The actress, 44, said he had a “lucky escape” but didn’t reveal what had happened to John at the time.

The couple had just been enjoying a day out at Claridge’s before news of the accident emerged.

Lisa and John met after she won Celebrity MasterChef in 2010.
