James’ family life

James grew up in Yorkshire and spent his childhood learning how to cook in the kitchen with his mum.

Despite their close bond, he previously revealed how Sue is his biggest critic.

Speaking to the Mirror, James said: “Mum is my biggest critic, biggest fan.

“If I could be 10% what my mum is I’d be a 100% better person. My granny, who passed away 15 years ago, was very special too.”
