He jumped across into television to join ‘Foxtel’s’ ‘Nickelodeon channel’, hosting their Saturday morning show ‘sn:tv’ and specials, including ‘Head to Head’. He became a popular children’s television personality and appeared on a number of other shows, including ‘Sarvo’ and the ‘Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards’.

Acting: James has also tried his hand at acting, appearing in the medical drama ‘All Saints’ and the Australian feature film ‘Lovely Scary Wolves’.

Dancing with the Stars: He proved to be a crowd favourite and had a ball on the ‘Seven Network’s’ ‘Dancing with The Stars’ – which he believes proved that he is better at interviewing entertainers than perhaps dancing around as one.
