There’s one thing that the nation is clearly a fan of and that’s a good love story.

From Celebs Go Dating to First Dates, you’re never really short of a dating show nowadays.

But there’s a new kind of dating show in town – Flirty Dancing, where rather than dating traditionally, couples find love through their passion for dance.

Taking part in the rumba-romance combination is James White, here are seven things we found out from his Instagram!

James is an Uncle

From the look of James’s social media, he has a very close family.

He has one younger sister and is an uncle to her two daughters – a hilarious one at that!

James’ Tattoos

Through his Instagram, it’s clear to see that James lives life to the fullest.

James has a few tattoos including one on his chest that says ‘La Vida Sueno’ meaning ‘Life is a dream’.

He also has the words ‘All is well’ etched on his forearm and a cat silhouette on his inner arm.

James Likes Plants

One aspect of James’s social media feed to note would be the fact that he has a soft spot for plants.

Modelling next to foliage for a plant appreciation Instagram page is one thing, but anyone hashtagging ‘plant daddy’ must really love some shrubbery.

James is a Leicester Fan

Mr White is always out and about doing something from his Instagram, if he’s not visiting the Carlsberg factory, getting a new tattoo, or taking pics in designer gear, he’s out supporting his favourite football team, Leicester City F.C.

James looks like a huge fan of The Foxes and maybe he gets away with it as they won the Premier League in 2016.

James Does Well For Himself

It seems that James has a pretty good career in the cosmetics business.

He used to work for L’oreal and now is a ‘Benebabe’ for Benefit cosmetics.

James looks pretty chuffed stood next to his new wheels, he just needs a passenger now.

James’ Love Life

On the basis that James is giving a dating show a shot you could guess he’s pretty keen on finding that someone special.

From his Insta, James seems to be quite comfortable pointing fun at the fact that he’s relatively unlucky in love.

Some of his followers even comment on his posts asking how he’s still single.
