James Martin is no stranger to our screens as he regularly appears on This Morning as well as presenting his own Saturday morning show on ITV. But while he is known for his passion for cooking and good food, what is known of James’ love life?

The TV chef and partner Louise Davies, a television producer, have been together since 2011.

Despite their lengthy romance, the couple are yet to tie the knot with him having since admitted he has previously prioritised his career.

During an interview with Prima, he explained: “The biggest low of my career is that I’ve given up everything for it.

“I look at my mates and they’re all married with kids, and that’s not the case for me because I’ve been so focused on work.”

James went on to talk of how marriage could have impacted his career as well as who he is today.

He explained: “The level of commitment it requires and the choices you have to make have a huge impact.

“But would I do the same thing again? Probably, because it’s made me who I am.

“And why does everybody have to follow the norm anyway?”

In a separate interview with the Sunday People, James spoke of how he is “happy” without the commitment of marriage.

He told the publication: “It doesn’t interest me in the slightest, mainly because I’ve catered for so many weddings, really.

“I admire people who do it, that’s fine, but I’m quite happy.

“I don’t need to spend 60 grand on a day, no, I’m more than happy thanks.”

James prefers to keep his relationship with Louise out of the public eye and only shares work-related posts on his social media.

Talking of his decision to lead a private life, James spoke candidly on how he values his family life.

He told Chris Evans on his podcast How To Wow last year: “I won’t talk about my private life.”

The 48-year-old continued: “I’ve walked out of interviews over it, I just won’t.

“I didn’t go into this business to then sell your soul, where have I got to go? I’ve got nowhere to go.

“If I just put it all out there, there’s nothing there for my family and I value my family every single day.”

While he tends not to post of his life off-screen, earlier this week James shared a snap of one of his dogs Ralph, who was taken ill to his 549,000 followers on Instagram.

He captioned the post: “After an operation today someone is a bit wobbly…but all is well and fine.”

The celebrity chef’s most notable relationship before Louise was with James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli.

They were together for four years but in 2005 announced they had gone their separate ways.

Amid their high-profile courtship, James remained tight-lipped about his love life and didn’t go public with his relationship with Louise until 2016.
