James Belshaw was a Countdown contestant in Series 66. His score of 15 is the seventh lowest 15 round score for a male contestant in the show's history.

In 2010 Belshaw appeared on Coach Trip with his girlfriend Sophia, lasting six days before being red carded. In 2012 he popped up as a contestant on the BBC game show The Weakest Link, coming 4th, and on the second series of Breakaway, where although not winning, James was the only contestant to break away. He also appeared as Gymsuper5, his self-created superhero on Morgan Spurlock's New Britannia. He appeared on Tipping Point the following year, coming third.

In 2014 he appeared with his girlfriend Sophia on Pointless where they were eliminated in third and fourth place on consecutive shows, both with less than thirty points. He also appeared on Britain's Deadliest Roads, a Channel 5 documentary.

In 2015 Belshaw appeared on Two Tribes, coming second, and on Benchmark, where he reached the head to head at his first attempt. Not that anyone watched that one.

In 2016 Belshaw appeared on The Getaway Car with his girlfriend and The Question Jury on his own, winning a cash prize. In 2017 he appeared on the BBC show Letterbox with his girlfriend. He also appeared in Lookalikes as a bouncer.
