James’ girlfriend, model Kirstie Brittain 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.
“He sees Harry as a grand-father — it’s so cute. He really wants to look after him, which is why he’s giving him his food.”
