James suffered several dislocated shoulders and speaking more about this and his time on Gladiators, he recently told Metro:

“I dislocated my shoulder six times. It just kept coming out. Because of the time restriction of the show I could never get it properly sorted. That would have meant being out for seven months.

“A lot of people didn’t realise that we filmed two shows a day, with two days on and two off. In one weekend we’d have filmed four shows.”

The Circle 2021 star is a qualified yoga instructor at Sadhana Wellbeing, has trained as an actor and presented on ITV’s Peak Performance.

Moreover, he broke the world record for lifting the Dinnie Stones, on May 1st, 2018.

When asked about why he decided to be on the show, James revealed that he if he wins, he would like to donate some money to the NHS.
