The Strictly star said of turning 30: “Terrible! Joking, it’s not too bad.
“When I was younger, my favourite age was 21. But back then I was insecure and worried. I used to worry I was short.
“Now I don’t care. When you get to 30 you know what you want to do and where you want to go.
“Life is about having a purpose – being a parent, an artist, whatever.”
Jamie first hit our screens in 2011 on the second series of Made in Chelsea.
Talking of his time on the series in October Jamie said: “I am incredibly loyal towards [production company] Monkey Kingdom and Channel 4; a lot of people talk badly about reality shows and say they were shown in a bad light.
“Well, I was shown in a bad light, I was shown in a good light. I went on the most amazing holidays – I got paid to hang out with my friends.”
He told the Sunday Times: “And I was on TV for 10 years; I’d never say: ‘Hey, that’s me done’, but yes I am definitely taking a step back.”

Jamie had been slated to appear on Strictly in the 2019 series although after a foot injury he had to withdraw from the competition.
Ahead of the latest series, Jamie spoke of his excitement to be back, saying: “I can’t wait to wear sequins and sparkles and spandex and glitter and fake tan and everything.
He added: “Honestly, that is what I do in my spare time, let alone doing it in front of millions of people!”
Jamie and dance partner Karen Hauer have since reached the semi-finals of the series.
The Made in Chelsea star posted of reaching the coveted stage in the competition on his Instagram, saying: “We’re through to the Semi-Finals!!
“From someone who’s never danced before in their life, I’m super proud of what we’ve achieved even though that was our third dance off. @jj.chalmers and @amy_dowden you guys are rockstars.
“Thank you everyone for your support – really hoping that this week we can make you smile once again!! Bring on the Semi-Finals.”
Strictly Come Dancing will air tonight on BBC One at 7pm.
