Arg, who at his heaviest weighed in at 27 stone but now weighs 15st 7lb, looked in very good spirits as he performed to Sister Sledge’s He’s The Greatest Dancer.  

Showing off his slimmer figure, the television personality jived away in a dark red patterned shirt which he paired with white slacks. Tommy, meanwhile, sported a grey paisley shirt and black trousers. 

In the video, the pair synchronised dancing, before James danced solo by thrusting his hips.

Arg told The Sun in a new interview that he was on the brink of death but hadn’t listened to doctors when they warned him.   

He admitted he weighed a whopping 27 stone after guzzling down a string of takeaways and fizzy drinks while the coronavirus pandemic left him housebound due to his asthma and morbidly obese state.

The ‘big wake up call’ came when his mum Patricia wept at the sight of her ‘unrecognisable’ son, who had ballooned after replacing his cocaine addiction with unhealthy grub.

After he binged the high-calorie meals, Arg was left exhausted so would stay at home on a regular basis. However, one afternoon she found him in bed and began crying.

He admitted: ‘I could have been a goner, so I just knew I had to do something.’  

The surgery saw 70 percent of his stomach was removed in the £10,000 operation, which now means he must not drink liquid half an hour before or after eating, with his much-loved fizzy drinks prohibited.

He said: ‘If I drink water just before a meal it sits above my stomach, and if I eat too soon it can make me sick.’   

The reality star now swears by a strict diet of chicken salad, fish and vegetables which he supplements with multivitamins, while limiting his liquid intake to green tea and water.

As well as this, he’s certainly putting his gym membership to use, where he attends boxing, swimming and weight training sessions five times a week.
