James Martin's dilemma over not having kids unveiled amid romance with PA girlfriend

"The level of commitment it requires and the choices you have to make have a huge impact."However, James did not regret doing things the way he did, choosing the same pathway a second time around if needed."But would I do the same thing again? Probably, because it’s made me who I am," he added to Prima Magazine back in 2020.James has been in a relationship with Louise Davies since 2011 after meeting on the set of a TV show.Not much is known about the pair's longtime relationship, with the Saturday Morning host keeping his private life under wraps and away from social media, however, this hasn't stopped insiders revealing details.The TV star previously dated a former Miss England, Sally Kettle, to a James Bond producer, Barbara Broccoli.He met Louise in 2010 when he went on to the celebrity version of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire.Since news of their relationship came in 2016, the television chef rarely speaks about his private life with his long-term partner.However, a source gave an insight into the pair’s relationship in 2017, telling The Sun: "James desperately wants to keep his private life out of the spotlight and under wraps following his romance with Barbara Broccoli."It’s easy to do with Louise as she likes things low-key as well, unlike Barbara who loved making a fuss over him."The insider added Louise goes "everywhere" with him, often coming along with him to his TV production sets.James previously explained that while others may be happy to go all out for the big day, he admittedly is "not interested" in getting married.He added that he has catered at a lot of wedding events and understands all that goes into the big event.Asked if he would ever walk down the aisle, James said: “No, it doesn’t interest me in

Ed Sheeran has said he’d already “started writing” the theme song for No Time To Die when he was replaced by Billie Eilish.Back in 2019, Sheeran’s manager revealed that the star had met James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli two years prior to discuss penning the official track for the most recent film in the hit spy franchise.Danny Boyle, who worked with Sheeran on Richard Curtis’ Yesterday (2019), was lined up to direct the 25th Bond movie at the time (he later quit due to “creative differences”, with Cary Joji Fukunaga taking over the role).“Obviously they changed directors but we’re still open to it,” Stuart Camp explained. “But they’re not even having those conversations yet.”He added: “It’s certainly something [Sheeran would] want to do though, it’s a box that’s still to be ticked, for sure.”But the No Time To Die theme ended up going to Billie Eilish, who went on to win her first Oscar for the song.During an appearance on That Peter Crouch Podcast this week, Sheeran explained: “I was within a fucking gnat’s pube of doing one [a Bond theme], but then they changed directors, changed scripts and that was it all done.“I had started writing it.
