But now “thousands” of fans have offered their homes up to James and Ola.
Taking to Instagram, 44-year-old James explained that he and his wife and daughter have now found new accommodation, but was inundated with offers.
On a video posted to social media, James explained: “Hi guys, I hope you're well. I haven't been on here for a little while. As many of you are aware, we are currently trying to move home.
"We didn't have anywhere to go because the rental property we were gonna move into didn't work out for several reasons. We have now finally found somewhere else.
“But I wanted to come on here just to say thank you so much. I must have had 1000s upon 1000s of messages of amazing people out there offering their help offering for us to come and live with them from Ireland, Scotland everywhere, which is really, really nice.
"And I just wanted to come on here to say thank you very much.”
In the cheeky piece to camera, he quipped: “And there were even the odd guys saying that they were happy to take Ola but unfortunately didn't have space for myself and Ella."

It comes after the pair were put off by a boastful landlord, explaining on Instagram: “We are currently in the process of moving and need to move into rented accommodation for about 6 months.
“We found a rental property we liked and went this morning to meet the landlord. I have never been spoken to so rudely! Especially in front of Ola and Ella. It was almost like a setup.”
The Strictly dancer said: “I hope no one out there has experiences this with a landlord. He spoke down to us from the minute I shook his hand.
“Currently homeless. Anyone want to take Ola, Ella and myself for Christmas?”
