Viewers took to social media and questioned the presenter’s absence from the programme.

Opening the show, Tim explained that Simon was feeling “poorly” and another chef would be taking over in the kitchen.

Simon recently faced a family tragedy as he previously announced his dad had died.

Last month, he appeared on Steph’s Packed Lunch and spoke fondly of the NHS and the staff members who assisted with his dad’s end of life care.

He said: “Yeah, unfortunately, my dad passed away last Thursday.

“I’ve always, always loved the NHS but every single person that was involved at the end of my dad’s life.

“Not just for him and the care that he got, but us as family, in his final hours. They were just amazing, they could not have been more supportive.

“Just a massive thank you, thank you, thank you, to everybody at Arrowe Park Hospital who really just made my dad’s final hours incredible. They really, really did,” he added.

Sunday Brunch airs next week on Channel 4 at 9.30.
