James Wong Profile

For a man who spends so much time in front of TV cameras, BBC presenter James Wong is surprisingly bashful when it comes to having his photograph taken. ‘When I’m talking and doing things in front of a camera I soon relax, but standing still and looking silently into the lens is rather daunting,’ he admits. However, his usual exuberance swiftly resurfaces once talk turns to the unusual edible crops that he trials in raised beds in his mother’s front garden, a delightfully incongruous spectacle amidst London’s suburban lawns. ‘I live in a flat in London with only a tiny balcony and windowsills for growing plants, but here I’ve the space to experiment,’ he says.
