However, his love for diary and his lifestyle has recently had to change, as he told The Herald James: “Heart disease has been an issue in my family for generations.
“My dad likes his food deep-fried with lots of butter, but he doesn’t like running it off, I don’t do much exercise either.”
James continued: “When you’re a big bloke like my grandfather, father and me, it’s not as easy to stay fit as it is for someone who’s a bit smaller.”
Sadly, however, his father and formerly the resident chef of Castle Howard in Yorkshire, has suffered three heart attacks, and James’ late paternal grandfather also died of heart disease.
James Martin Saturday Morning airs Saturdays at 9:30am on ITV.
