Shortly after his split from his second wife Sarah in 1998, James met Helen at a restaurant where she worked as a waitress. The couple decided to live together at his Wimbledon home in 1991. In 1993, the couple got engaged in Greece.
Prior to dating Helen, James was married twice. He married model Suzy Miller on October 18, 1974. The following year, Miller left Hunt for the actor Richard Burton.
Sarah Lomax was Hunt’s second wife. The couple got married on December 17, 1983 in Marlborough, Wiltshire. The two met in Spain in 1982. They had two children together: Tom and Freddie.
In 1993, Hunt died of a heart attack at his home in Wimbledon. He was found dead only a few hours after proposing to his then girlfriend Helen Dyson.
