James has also co-presented 2 series of Oz & James's Big Wine Adventure, which features them traveling through France and California trying to learn all things wine. The show became highly popular for their questionably sober bickering and bantering, resulting in a 3rd series called ‘OZ and James Drink to Britain’.
To add to his impressive list of shows, the ever in demand presenter released the TV series; ‘James May’s Toy Stories’ later this year. In this show he is featured on the Chelsea Flower Show with his ‘Paradise in Plasticine’ and designing, building and living in a two-storey Lego house for one weekend which even comes supplied with electricity and plumbing - including a fully working toilet made of Lego.
He is a sought after motoring journalist writing for Top Gear Magazine and The Daily Telegraph and has contributed over the years to Car Magazine, The Scotsman, Country Life and various technology and travel titles.
James has a wealth of corporate experience working with many blue chip companies, his relaxed style coupled with his sense of humour; sharp dry wit and exuberant personality make him an ideal choice.
James has also done extensive broadcast work and been a regular radio and TV presenter, including Breakfast TV, BBC Radio 2, The Boat Show, ITV1, as well as branching into the world of music as co-host in January 2006 on BBC2’s ‘Top of the Pops’.
James has a keen interest in cars that are either very posh or very basic and a passion for motorbikes.
