His great-great-grandfather Sir Alexander Grant invented the Jaffa cake, Digestive and Rich Tea biscuit.
Sir Grant soon became the chairman and managing director of United Biscuits, the company that owns McVitie's.
Even now, the business is still in the family and although Jamie does not get any money from this directly, his dad is said to be a silent partner in the company.
This didn’t stop Jamie creating his own name and set up a sweet and clothing brand Candy Kittens in King's Road, Chelsea.
