The actor joined Emmerdale last year as Charity Dingle's long-lost son.

Years ago, 14-year-old Charity Dingle found out she was pregnant for the second time after being held captive and raped by DI Mark Bails and his friends.

She gave birth to Ryan in hospital, however she thought her son had died and she ran off.

Ryan had survived and was adopted by the midwife Irene Stocks and was raised by her.

Charity got into contact with a now 28-year-old Ryan and explained the full story. Eventually DI Bails was sentenced to thirty years in prison after being found guilty of unlawfully imprisoning Charity and raping her.

After a bumpy start, Ryan began coming to the village and Charity introduced Ryan to her family.

In the village, he befriended Dawn and the pair began seeing each other. However, she recently ended things after her father asked her to end their relationship in order to prove her loyalty to him.

James won the National Television Award for best newcomer earlier this year in January.
