James apologises to fans

“My dad is such a positive person and so strong in his mind and his opinion is yes we have to stay at home and it’s an annoyance and frustrating.

“But we have to do it to protect everyone else and that’s why we’re staying at home.”

Following his appearance, James apologised to his fans on Twitter and admitted it was “the hardest TV interview” he’s ever done.

He wrote: “Well that was the hardest TV interview I’ve ever done.

“I said I wouldn’t cry no matter what and then I saw the picture of my dad come up on the screen.

“Sorry if we came across a bit miserable.”
