"If you are someone that has contributed to everything that’s happened in the last year-and-a-half with COVID-19, a frontline worker, it could be in a hospital, it could be someone just looking after people.”

Oliver, 46, is planning six shows and said he needs “a whole bunch of people that deserve a little bit of love”.

“I’m looking for groups of four, five, six, seven people, and I need to kind of feel that I am picking the right people and that’s where you come in,” he said.

“If you know anyone that has gone far and beyond, please let me know.”

"I’m going to get you fed and watered and we are going to have a real laugh.

“You don’t have to do anything, there is no pressure. I’m just going to look after you."
