Before his Celebrity Operation Transformation journey began, James told 2FM listeners that an ulcer on his leg confined him largely to the armchair, during which time he piled on the pounds.

At 6'2 and 19 stone, James was hoping to lose three stone as a long-term goal. "My diddies are my issue" he told Nicky and Jenny. 

It will come to no surprise to James's followers that he lost the most amount of weight on the show. This leader was determined to go "hell for leather" and give it his all. He meal prepped for Electric Picnic, adjusted his plan to suit his doctor's order and he even led his own exercise class.
