James Martin's relationship with his new girlfriend, personal trainer Kim Johnson, is still going strong. Their romance comes after the Saturday Kitchen host, 51, ended his 12-year relationship with Louise Davies earlier this year, with the pair thought to have remained friends.

It is not known when James and Kim first got together, but they were spotted browsing watches in a shop in Mayfair on March 16, 2024. Kim was previously married to was businessman Arun Nayar, the entrepreneur behind technology company Direction Software Solutions. Arun boasts an impressive estimated net worth of of around $200 million.

She was his third wife, with his second marriage to Elizabeth Hurley, which ended in 2011.

The former couple first got together after the split in 2011 and went on to tie the knot in July 2016, but then divorced the following year. However, they kept in touch following their divorce and have been pictured together at events in the years since.

Kim and James have been dating for the past few months, following James's split with Louise Davies.

Despite James and Louise's relationship lasting for over a decade, they never tied the knot. Explaining the reason for this back in 2019, he told Sunday People: "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."

The pair also never welcomed children, and in a past interview James discussed how he hadn't started a family because he was "so focused on work". Speaking to Prima in 2020, he said: "The biggest low of my career is that I've given up everything for it."

Despite his friends being "all married with kids", James said that he has no regrets about his choices. He added: "The level of commitment it requires and the choices you have to make have a huge impact." And while he considers it his "biggest low" James also said that he would likely make the same choices again.

"But would I do the same thing again? Probably, because it's made me who I am." he explained.

Prior to his relationship with Louise, James had a romance with James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and the pair were together for four and a half years after she 'won' him at a celebrity auction in 2001 by bidding £18,000 for him to cook for a dinner party at her home.
