Slim James 'Arg' Argent looks happy and healthier as he steps out in Marbella with Elliott Wright

JAMES Argent looked back to his old self as he stepped out in Marbella yesterday with his close pal Elliot Wright.

The 33-year-old showed off his seven stone weight loss in fitted shorts and T-shirt as the gang boarded a boat for some fun in the sun.

Arg managed to forget his swimming trunks though and ended up stripping off to his Y-fronts so he could go for a swim. 

The former Towie star underwent a "life-saving" weight loss operation this year, after being told by doctors that he could die if he doesn't shed the pounds.

The star shocked fans when he revealed that he had ballooned to almost 27 stone during lockdown, saying he swapped a drink and drug addiction for junk food when Covid closed gyms and pools.

The Sun exclusively revealed that Arg had the surgery to help him lose 11 stone and save his life.

Now he has set his sights on a 14 stone weight loss target – half his original body weight.

James has been spending time with his good pal Elliott and his wife Sadie, who were finally able to reopen their restaurant in Marbella four months after it burnt down.

Elliott, 41, told fans of how he had to rebuild the lavish Spanish eatery after it was targeted by an arsonist weeks after his father died of Covid-19.

In another heartbreaking turn of events, Elliott and Sadie tragically lost their baby after she suffered a miscarriage at five months.

The couple had announced earlier in the year they were expecting their second child together before the restaurant was burnt down.

James flew out to support Elliot, who is the older brother of Heart Radio presenter and former reality star Mark Wright.
