James Bailey is the youngest son of Ed and Aggie Bailey and a Weatherfield County footballer.

In May 2019, Street Cars driver Steve McDonald threatened James and his friends when they refused to pay their taxi fare. Steve, who had been held at knife-point by a customer the week before, produced a baseball bat and gave chase to the boys - with James being run over by a car in the process. Taking James back to the cab office, Steve ensured that he was alright and, after realising he played for County, he agreed not to get him in trouble with the police. However, Brian Packham turned up with officers anyway and, despite Steve and James covering for each other, DS Willets informed Steve that he didn't think he was fit for driving and that he would put in a request for him to lose his taxi licence.

In June 2019 he along with his parents and older brother Michael moved into 3 Coronation Street and his family took over the builder's yard.
