Chatting to The Times back in 2020, he explained: “I found London very claustrophobic. There's an energy about it that I absolutely love, but I need green fields and space.” He and his family ended up living in Herefordshire, where he said: “We knew what we were looking for — something with space, something with outbuildings. And having its own plot was really important to me."

He added: "My perfect day is a nice, warm, sunny Sunday with myself, my wife, my son and our dogs all out gardening having a really lazy day. I love it when there is no one to ring, no one to bother with and we are just immersed in the practicalities of being outdoors, getting mucky and transforming the garden.”

Jules lives with his partner, Tania Fitzgerald, and their young son, Jack. The pair also share two Labradors, Teddy and Iolo. He recently chatted about Jack on Escape to the Country, saying his best ever moment was “when my son Jack finally recognised that I was his father and made a noise and looked at me with his eyes that said to me I finally have a role in this relationship. He was probably 18 months or something”.

He continued: "To be honest with you, I never looked forward to having children it wasn't on my radar at all. But having Jack now and watching life unfold through the prism of his eyes and his mind and helping him learn about the world around him and understanding how we learn has been one of life's greatest revelations to me."
