The Made In Chelsea star, 33, founded his confectionary company, Candy Kittens, in January 2012 with friend Ed Williams, 32.

Posted on the same date to Company House, Longaim Ltd has total equity of £1,875,522, meaning that the combined equity of both companies is worth over £5 million.

Gourmet sweet brand Candy Kittens sells vegan and vegetarian-friendly sweets in bag, bundle or personalised jar form – with prices starting from £3.

On a personal level, Jamie enjoyed a successful 2020 after reaching the final of Strictly Come Dancing last month with his professional dance partner, Karen Hauer.
