During covid, Bertie was part of a litter of pups welcomed by James and his now-pregnant wife, Alizee. The Couple sent Bertie to train as a guide dog, and as a special birthday treat for the pooch, reunited him with his furry sibling, Isla. The photo appeared to show James kissing and cuddling two dogs at the guide dogs centre. See the heartwarming reunion moment in the video below.

James has always been incredibly open about his battle with depression and the important role his dogs play in helping him recover. 

Whilst talking to Ben Shepherd and Kate Garraway on GMB, James also opened up about his sister, Princess Kate, revealing how she and her husband, Prince William have inspired him to speak out about his mental health. 

He said: “Through some of the work that they’ve been doing… it gave me the confidence to speak out.”

Adding: “To see her blossoming in that role… I’m very proud of her.”
