Crowe has promoted the service on his Twitter account which has more than 2.7million followers.
In the video, Crowe said: “Good day folks, how are you doing? This is a message on behalf of my old mate Johnny Vegas.
“If you’re in the St Helens area and you’re having trouble getting food deliveries from your local supermarket, if you’re NHS staff, a key worker, elderly, isolating or vulnerable, call this number – 01744 881881.
“The Steve Prescott Foundation and the Blackbrook Rugby League Team have set up a delivery service and they can help you out. They can pick up your shopping and they can even pick up your medicine.
“One of the delivery workers is going to be Johnny Vegas, so expect to lose every second or third biscuit.”
