British chef and presenter James Martin have been relishing a happy relationship with his long-term girlfriend, Louise Davies, since 2011. However, he has no plans of getting married and starting a family with his partner.
James Martin Doesn't Want To Get Married?
Martin first met his long-time partner, Louise- a producer on the set of Celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in 2010. During an interview in 2019, when he was questioned about his marriage, Martin mentioned that he is not interested in getting married and doesn't want to spend a large amount of money for a single day as he is already happy.
"No, it doesn't interest me in the slightest, mainly because I've catered for so many weddings, really. I admire people who do it, that's fine, but I'm quite happy. I don't need to spend 60 grand on a day, no, I'm more than happy thanks."
James also expressed that he would rather spend his money on his interests and hobbies, mostly his love for cars.

Further, Martin also added that his partner, Davies is also not interested in getting married, and the two prefer forcing on their individual works. The couple keeps their relationship very low-key and prefers not to post about each other on their social media as well.
Split From Multi-Millionaire Girlfriend
Before dating Lousie, Martin was in a relationship with Barbara Broccoli. The two first met in 2001 at a charity auction where she asked him to cook a meal at her Chelsea house.
Till then, he didn’t know that she was a co-producer for several of recent James Bond movies. During an interview in 2008, he accepted his relationship with Barbara as the best years of his life, and he mentioned that being with her was breathtaking. James describes her as someone who would never ask for anything but would give everything she had to make someone happy.
As Barbara knew that James loves surprises, she surprised him with a silver Ferrari 360 Spyder, a genuine Picasso, and a Paul Newman Daytona Rolex, one of the rarest while they were still together.

Further, he also stated that Barbara wasn’t pretentious, and the age difference of 12 years was never the problem.
The age gap didn't help matters in public. When we went to functions I felt uncomfortable when people looked at me, this nobody, and probably thought, 'He's with her for the money. But I never wanted anything from Barbara. Maybe it's male pride but there were certain places I refused to go unless I paid.
Martin revealed that the reason for their split was the increasing differences between them.
After his split with Barbara in 2005, James was reported to be in relationships with Julia Dempster-interior designer, Sally Kettle-ex-Miss England, and Claire Goose- a Scottish actress and FHM model.
