James Redman had his first allergic reaction to peanuts when he was three years old after his mother gave him a curry containing just 3% peanut. His parents were told he had a life-threatening allergy. But today James, now 12 years old, can safely tolerate up to seven peanuts after taking part in a trial which James has described as a "life-changer". The treatment hasn't cured his allergy - but it has reduced the risk of a severe reaction if he is exposed to peanuts accidentally. With peanut allergy doubling over the past two decades, and 1 in 50 children in the UK now affected, Good Morning Britain is joined by James and his mother, Zoe, as well as the UK's chief investigator in the trial, Professor George du Toit, to discuss how the treatment works, and what this means for peanut allergy sufferers in the UK.
