Fans to ‘snub’ him for award in favour of Dave Myers

James Martin took to social media to share some exciting news yesterday (March 19) as it was revealed he’d split from girlfriend Louise Davies.

James shared that he has been nominated for the Personality of the Year at this year’s Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards. However, his announcement didn’t go down well with all of his fans.

After posting the nomination news on Instagram, plenty of his followers agreed that they aren’t rooting for James. Instead, they’re voting for the late Dave Myers to get the award.
