The business venture, a dog food company that provides dry food with all the nutritional value of raw food, was launched last year – and was inspired by James' love for his pet dogs.

In the past, the entrepreneur has spoken about the positive impact his pooches have had on his mental health. On his website, James has written: "A few years back, my dogs helped pull me out of a really difficult battle with depression.

He added: "Determined to stick with raw-feeding, I pulled together a team of industry experts and nutritionists and together we developed Ella's freeze-dried food that is just as nutritionally-sound as the real deal, but without any of the hassle.

"Developing Ella & Co has been a true labour of love and I’m so thrilled to share the finished product with you."

James' spaniels Ella, Inca, Luna, Zulu and golden retriever Mabel, regularly feature on his Instagram account. He has even credited Ella with helping him find love after she bounded over to his now fiancée Alizee Thevenet at London's South Kensington Club in 2018.

The couple announced their engagement in October 2019 and James has since revealed they have had to postpone their wedding - which was due to take place in May 2020 - because of the coronavirus pandemic.
