Good Morning Britain viewers had their faith restored in humanity on Thursday morning after ‘hero’ plumber James Anderson joined the program revealing that he offers free services to the vulnerable.

James has helped over 50,000 people since launching his charity Depher UK, which aims to help people keep their boilers running during the cost of living crisis.

But it’s not just boilers though, as the charity goes above and beyond to make sure empty fridges are filled, bills are paid and they even buy nappies for parents struggling to buy baby supplies for their children.

Speaking to presenters Adil Ray and Charlotte Hawkins, James shared: ‘We are there to see people, remove the stigma, remove the elephant in the room, get rid of it.

‘Come to us, whatever you need, we will deal with that for you and then, the after affects, we can get help for you on that as well.’

He continued: ‘It’s all down to coming together as a community, companies especially coming together, and having that community awareness that some people out there cannot do this themselves.’

James’s appearance on Good Morning Britain comes after a dire prediction that an annual energy bill is likely to hit £4,266 for the average household in the UK.

The plumber warned that if urgent plans aren’t put into place by the end of the week then there will be catastrophic results.

‘The Government needs to open its eyes because if they don’t people will die,’ he said. ‘It’s not going to be if or when, people will die.’

Viewers were in awe of James’s generous spirit and applauded his efforts on social media.

‘Bravo to James the plumber for offering his services free to the needy,’ one praised. ‘A touching insight into the realities of the energy crisis.’

‘James Anderson is a shining beacon of humanity,’ another wrote. ‘He is a true hero and people’s champion. Politicians take note and help people in the ingenious way James does.’

A third penned: ‘WONDERFUL, kind, caring superhero James. Amazing person who cares. Wouldn’t the country be in a better place if more people were like James. Come on companies, step up!’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
