James shared this reel with followers

James, who has always been open about how he overcame his battle with depression, is a great lover of the outdoors and in particular, taking his six dogs for walkies.

Speaking to HELLO! for our Mental Health Digital Issue guest-edited by Scarlett Moffatt, earlier in 2022, James said: "I also enjoy taking my six dogs for walks. It's lovely when people are interested in my dogs. They stop and say, 'Please can we say hi to them?' Before we know it, we're chatting."

James has six pups including Mabel, and is the ambassador for Goodwoof, a festival dedicated to dogs which takes place at Goodwood Kennels in West Sussex annually.

"If you don't have a dog, maybe you could volunteer at a local shelter,' he continued.

"Most charities need volunteers to help with the dogs, or to foster them. The Dogs Trust and Battersea Dogs Home both do fostering programmes – before they find their forever home they need to get used to living in a house.

"You can tell a dog your darkest thoughts and trust them because they won't tell anyone else. To put your emotions into words to your dog is a release."
