He has now revealed he’s willing to offer a reward for the return of some of his precious heirlooms.

Speaking to Diaro de Ibiza, good-humoured James said: “The thieves took about 100 items, including a black and white rug that my wife did not like, so I suspect she could be involved.

“They also took all my t-shirts and shirts, so they must not have a very good sense of style, since I am not known for mine.”

James continued to explain how he “understood that it was a difficult time for many people on the island” but his “only real sadness” is that a watch belonging to his grandfather and a bayonet from his soldiering days were taken.

He added that he would “gladly pay a reward for their return” and they could contact him through his email.

Police suspect three people were involved in the theft because of the number of finger prints found at the crime scene.

James, his wife Sofia Wellesley and their two sons, who are kept away from the limelight, were not at home at the time of the robbery as their house was being renovated.

Singer James bought the Ibiza property in 2006, which is a 150 year old villa with six bedrooms, a library, a huge swimming pool and bar.

James’ bar at the bottom of his garden, which has a sign which reads “Blunty's Bar: Where Everybody's Beautiful”, has been the spot for many celebrity parties over the years.

Ibiza has a special place in James’ heart as it is where he and his wife Sofia, who is the granddaughter of the 8th Duke of Wellington, married in 2014.

The singer had his family have been spending lockdown in Ibiza.

Speaking in June, he said: “We’re allowed out now and lockdown is easing here in Spain so yeah, I’m out in the open air.”

He added: “I did the whole lockdown with my mother-in-law, in fact. So it was 68 days so far and 12 hours and 19 minutes.”
