James said his “biggest low” is not having children and getting married, but he insisted he would put his career first if he could choose again. 

He told Prima Magazine: “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.”

He added: “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?”

James is believed to have met his girlfriend Louise on the celebrity version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in 2010.

Their relationship first became public in 2016.

He tends to keep his love life out of the public eye and doesn’t post pictures of the pair on his public social media pages.

The chef opened up about why he chooses to keep his personal life away from the cameras, in a candid interview with the Daily Mirror.

James admitted he had been warned by a “high-profile” celebrity to enjoy his personal life behind closed doors.

Recalling the warning he received, he explained: “Don’t answer those questions. They all try – but you’ll get nothing.

“I always keep my public and private life separate.

“I’ve met some mega-famous people who’ve told me, ‘If you open that up, you’ve no where to go’.”

He added: “One very high-profile person said, ‘Build big gates at home for peace of mind’ and I did, so when I go back home that’s my time’.”

Elsewhere, James returned to work earlier this week as lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

Last weekend, the Government allowed pubs and restaurants to re-open for the first time in four months, in what was deemed “Super Saturday”.

James’ return to his restaurant The Kitchen proved to be a success, judging by his latest Instagram post.

The chef shared a picture of a ticket machine alongside a huge pile of order receipts.

The proud restaurant owner wrote: “It may mean nothing to some this picture it was taken by me just now halve way through service but it’s a restaurants life if you know you know… we are back.”
