“Sitting with him now and I’m asking if you could all say a little prayer for him. I’m not ready to lose him! Love to all of you. #lovemydad.”
Fans, of course, sent messages of support to James.
I’m asking if you could all say a little prayer for him.

A couple of weeks ago, James became a dad himself for the first time after welcoming a little girl with his wife Ola Jordan.
The couple announced her arrival on February 29 in cute social media posts.
Ola wrote on Twitter: “She’s here and she is perfect #Mummy (sic).”
She added on Instagram: “She’s here and she is perfect.”
Meanwhile, James wrote: “I’m the happiest man in the world #daddy (sic).”
In December, James and Ola announced they would be having a girl in a video for Hello! magazine.
He confessed: “Because we were quite nervous going through IVF we didn’t want to jinx anything… now we know it’s a little girl it just feels very real now. It’s amazing. It’s brilliant.”
Ola added: “As a couple we always wanted to know what we’re having and I think Christmas is the best time to find out.
“I was so emotional! A little girl is the best thing that could happen to James, honestly. He’s not going to let her go.”
