Last month James revealed he’d lost a staggering 23lbs in the latest round of his weight loss journey.

Appearing on The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on Radio 2, James said the trick to his weight loss has been to see his new eating regime as a lifestyle change, rather than a ‘diet’.

When Zoe said he had shed a stone, James replied: ‘Oh it’s more, I’ve lost more. I’m down like 23 pounds which I think is what, a stone and a half?

‘I’m doing a bit of exercise, this is my tip. I’ve done every single diet in the world, I’ve done them all and what I’ve realised is, the notion of going on a diet is wrong.

‘You’re not going on a diet, you’re changing the way you eat and you’re going to change the way you eat forever. See it as, this is how I eat now.’

James revealed in the New Year that he has signed up to the health and fitness programme to help shift the conversation around wellness.

His outing also comes after Friends fans took to social media to question why the British presenter was picked to host the sitcom’s long-awaited reunion, with some suggesting that an American star should have landed the gig.

This comes as MailOnline also reported that James was the number-one choice by all six of the show’s cast members to host the reunion, which saw the stars look back at some of the sitcom’s most iconic moments.

James appeared as host when the cast made their way to the show’s iconic brown sofa, placed in front of a replica of the famous fountain that appeared in the opening credits.

Courteney Cox (Monica Gellar), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing), Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay) and David Schwimmer (Ross Gellar) all returned to the sitcom’s original set for the show.  

James was widely-panned for his interview with the show’s stars, with one critic  slamming his ‘banal’ questions. 

While the nostalgic element has been called upon and praised by experts, the lack of awareness towards the more problematic nature of the show set tongues wagging as well as James’ appearance as host.
