Brad Simpson said: "He’s thriving and he’s really come out of himself. He asked, do you mind if I go and we said he should do it."

James’ girlfriend Kirstie Brittain previously said: "James is being generous with his food, giving it to Harry because Harry is struggling so much with all the meats.

“James is veggie so he’s giving Harry half his veg, which is why he’s gotten so skinny.

"James was slim when he went in so he’s lost a lot of weight. Sair Khan told me how generous he has been. We’re not seeing it on screen."

This comes after Harry’s son Jamie spoke about his fears that his dad could walk over the lack of food.
