The celebrity chef and TV presenter rarely comments on his romance with Louise, however, in 2019, he revealed he has no plans to propose or start a family.

When asked about plans to walk down the aisle, James told the Sunday People: "No, it doesn't interest me in the slightest, mainly because I've catered for so many weddings, really. I admire people who do it, that's fine, but I'm quite happy. I don't need to spend 60 grand on a day, no, I'm more than happy thanks."
