That turned her into a reality star, meaning she was a big enough name to appear on Celebrity Dinner Dates (ITV) and When Celebrity Goes Horribly Wrong (Channel 5). Big Brother fans might also recognise her from presenting brief segments on BB spin-off Big Brother’s Bit on the Side.
Fanatic Hoxton Radio listeners (aren’t we all?) might recognise Ashley’s voice from her regular Friday afternoon shows.
And just in case you weren’t convinced by her celebrity status, James has hosted a series of Facebook Live shows for Hollyoaks and fronted Style Stars on PopGirlTV and Clothes Show Live.
