“Exciting news!” he wrote. (Not that) And I apologize for my blotchy face; I was on a boat @primevideouk.”
With his long hair down and a white beard, the car fanatic made his declaration.
Fans immediately reacted to his appearance, with many comparing him to Billy Connolly.

“Dear James, is there going to be any more The Reassembler?” wrote another.
“I find them quite relaxing. Thank you very much.”
