James Martin’s 5-word remark about marriage before splitting from ex of 12 years

Before announcing his shock spit from girlfriend Louise Davies, James Martin revealed his thoughts on marriage. The celebrity chef was with Louise for 12 years before separating.

Reports emerged in March about James and Louise’s break up, with a spokesperson for James, 51, telling The Daily Mail that the couple parted ways in December 2023, but remain firm friends. Despite their romance spanning over a decade, Louise and James never married and had no children.

However, James previously explained why he doesn’t want to walk down the aisle. The chef admitted he wouldn’t want to splash the cash on a wedding and is “not interested” in tying the knot.

James told the Sunday People in 2019: “No, it doesn’t interest me in the slightest, mainly because I’ve catered for so many weddings, really. I admire people who do it, that’s fine, but I’m quite happy. I don’t need to spend 60 grand on a day, no, I’m more than happy thanks.”

He and Louise first started dating in 2011 and went on to live together in Hampshire. James also spoke in the past about not having children, saying it’s a “lifestyle choice” and he’s made “sacrifices” due to his job.

“No. I’ve not got that and that’s fine. It’s a lifestyle choice,” he said when asked about wanting a family, according to Express.co.uk. “The sacrifices you make doing your job are colossal, but the rewards are huge. And I don’t mean financial, it’s in [your head and heart]. That’s what matters.”

He also reportedly said in the past: “The sacrifices you make are huge. All my mates are married and have children. It was quite funny – my friends came over to my house last week, and we were walking through my garages when one of them said, ‘So this is what you could have had if you didn’t have kids’.”

Despite their recent split, James and Louise are said to have remained friends, even with the chef quickly moving on. He was recently spotted out and about with personal trainer Kim Johnson, who was previously married to businessman Arun Nayar – Elizabeth Hurley’s ex-husband.
