Sharing a picture of himself in Morrisons uniform, he wrote: “Everyone gotta do there bit… #coronavirus.”
He added the hashtag “nightshift”, and was offered words of support from his followers who were pleased to see him back online.
Supermarket workers have been hailed as heroes during the coronavirus pandemic as they have played a vital role in keeping the country moving during the lockdown.
Last year George was jailed for three months for drink-driving and retreated from public life.
He is thought to have run out of fuel for his Vauxhall and walked to a Tesco for advice about filling a can.
Staff guessed he had been drinking and called police.
He was jailed because he was serving a community punishment for attacking his ex-girlfriend in a drunken rage.
George was known on Gogglebox for his cheeky wit and high voice and was so popular he ended up up on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014.
His parents – Linda and Peter – were temporarily axed from the show when George took part in CBB, but they later returned without him.
