In a LInkedIn post, dated Friday, 31st May, he said: “So this is my last week at Homebase, and what a five and half years it’s been. I leave behind such a phenomenal team, who have delivered so much and made the business so much better and easier to be part of.”

He added: “Thanks you to everyone that has made it so much fun, and thank you to my team for being absolutely incredible and thank you for the most random but brilliant leaving gift ever, ensuring that I won’t ever forget you all. My next adventure in a completely different industry starts on Wednesday!”
