Cast your minds back to series four of Geordie Shore and you'll remember that James actually confessed he was in a relationship. He and Holly Hagan had enjoyed a holiday fling in Cancun the series before, but he made sure to put a stop to that on home soil as he had become a taken man.
Fans were later introduced to girlfriend Kate when James invited her along to one of their nights out on the 'Toon. Back then, James had seemed completely smitten and over three years later, it looks like he still is.
Yup, James and Kate are still dating and he recently shared picture proof of that by tweeting a selfie with her for his followers to see.
Making the most of the sunshine of late, he and Kate posed together in a car with their shades on and the roof down. Cute!
Fans had speculated whether the couple were still an item, as they rarely seem to share relationship updates on social media. Kate's last photo with James on her Instagram had been twelve weeks ago, while James' was a collage of himself and Kate eleven weeks back to mark her birthday.
However, a rep for James confirmed to Reveal that they are very much together still - maybe they just choose not to overshare on the photo PDAs? You can't blame them for wanting to keep things private!
James was an original on Geordie Shore, but decided to leave the show after ten series. He announced his exit in November 2014 and recently revealed he has since been focusing on his fitness ventures, including a supplement range and gym-wear brand.
We will get to see James back on our screens, though, as he is returning for Geordie Shore's five year special, Geordie Shore: Big Birthday Battle. It kicked off last week and the house has been divided into two teams: Team Charlotte and Team Gary.
The gang will be trying to outdo each other by putting on the best nights in Newcastle and they'll receive some help in the form of their old castmates. James is set to make his comeback in next week's episode... we wonder if he'll bring Kate along for the ride?
Geordie Shore: Big Birthday Battle continues Tuesday 17 May at 10pm on MTV.
