The father-and-son duo appeared on Chris Evans' Virgin Radio Breakfast show this week and discussed their new book, Practical Self Sufficiency: The Complete Guide To Sustainable Living, when James revealed that he had been spending some time with his father at their Chateau in France and even teased that he could be making an appearance on the show.

The 37-year-old said: "I went over and did some filming with my dad and Angela and did some cooking on Escape to the Chateau and it was great fun."
