The 33-year-old entrepreneur has been busy rearing his dog Luna's litter of six puppies and acquiring a puppy of his own, Nala. "Nala has been a wonderful addition to the family. She is so mischievous but a real delight, and the rest of the dogs have all bonded with her well," he exclusively tells HELLO!

James has also launched the charity The Paw Print Fund to raise money for the RSPCA, Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and The Dogs Trust, and started a new business, Ella & Co., inspired by his beloved dog Ella.

He tells us: "I've spoken a lot about how much joy my dogs bring me – and how they have helped me through dark times. It was Ella who inspired my new happiness and wellbeing company for dogs, Ella & Co., which I’ve been working hard at throughout lockdown."
