During an interview with The Sun’s TV Mag, the small-screen star divulged: “It may sound really weird but I’ve never actually watched a single show I’ve done.
“I get the feeling if I did, I’d change.”
James went on to explain he believes he would start questioning his appearance and outfit choices if he watched himself on TV.
He continued: “I’d look at myself and think: ‘Oh s**t, I shouldn’t have worn that!’ or: “We won’t do that angle again, look at that double chin!’”
James then insisted that “life is too bl**dy short” to concern himself about how he comes across on his shows.
He added: “Honestly, life is too bl**dy short.
“I love my job and I’m very privileged to do it and try my very best.”
Saturday Morning airs tomorrow on ITV at 9.25am.
