If you’re in need of a midweek pick me up, then Gok’s chicken noodle soup is the perfect feelgood food for days in lockdown - If this dish had arms it would wrap itself around you, and give you a huge hug!

But can our presenters copy it live in the studio? Phillip and Holly cook alongside Gok in his noodle masterclass.
