First Dates introduced us to student James, the self-confessed ‘king of the friend zone’ who can drink a pint from his prosthetic leg.
However, underneath his playful outer shell, James was in the midst of a traumatic experience.
He was having a leg amputated.
Go on James great positive outlook on life good luck mate #FirstDates

The 19-year-old business studies student opened up to date Emilie about how he needed a twin-to-twin transfusion when he was 18 months old.

However, due to constant pain that remained in his right leg, James has been battling with the decision as to whether he should also have his right leg amputated.
He has decided to go ahead with the procedure of getting a second prosthetic leg, leaving a challenging road ahead.
#FirstDates Wow James is amazing and so brave, it must have been so tough to make that decision.

However, it looks like James may not be heading into the medical procedure alone.
His chemistry with 20-year-old fashion student Emilie was on fire, with the two joking about James’s many ‘disabled benefits’.
James and Ellie. Ah ❤💓#FirstDates
