James Argent looks happy and healthy as he flaunts 11 stone weight loss on 34th birthday

Former TOWIE star James Argent showcased his impressive weight loss as he popped to an Essex newsagents on Sunday

James ‘Arg’ Argent cut a trim figure as he stepped out over the weekend.

Earlier this year, the reality star bravely decided to undergo gastric band surgery after doctors warned him that if his weight kept on increasing that he was putting his life in danger.

And following the operation he has been dedicated to looking after his diet and fitness – and his hard work has been paying off.

In new snaps captured of the TOWIE personality on Sunday, he can be seen oozing confidence whilst striding out of a newsagent in Essex after picking up a newspaper.

James’ trim figure was on display in a pair of black skinny jeans teamed with a trendy beige sweater emblazoned with The Rolling Stones’ iconic lips and mouth logo.

The reality TV personality is feeling in a positive mindset after opening up on his booze and cocaine addiction.







And on Sunday as James – who previously was in an on and off relationship with Gemma Collins for several years – marked his 34th birthday he reflected on how far he has come this year and cheekily joked that he is hoping to meet his true love in 2022.

Taking to Instagram to share his happiness at his achievements since turning his life around, he penned: ” THE BIRTHDAY BOY! I can’t actually believe that I’m 34 today!

“I want to thank everyone for there love & support. I continuously get stopped in the street with people saying ‘keep going Arg’ & ‘You’ve got this’. I’ve been through a hell of a lot but I’m so lucky to have so many people behind me & that believe in me.

“I’ve got lots to be proud of. My weight loss, My beloved @theargband & the house that I always dreamed of buying but never thought I’d be able to get. Hopefully in 2022 I’ll meet the love of my life but most importantly stay happy & healthy! Love Always,




Under the post, which was illustrated with James posing on a bench in front of his home, several of his famous friends took to the comments.

Mark Wright wrote: “Proud of you…. Sometimes” alongside a crying with laughter and heart emoji.

“Happy birthday lovely xx,” Scarlett Moffatt joined in.

Amber Turner added: “Happy Birthday James!”

Seven months ago, Arg had gastric surgery after reaching 27 stone.

He had the operation at the Transform Hospital Group at the ­private Burcot Hall Hospital near Birmingham, which cost £10,000.

The surgery means that he can now only eat small portion sizes and is unable to drink half an hour before or after eating.

He said that the surgery had a huge “mental effect” on him as he lost the cravings for fast food he once had.

Back in April, he revealed to fans that he was getting surgery, declaring on Instagram at the time: “Today Is the First Day of the Rest of My Life. My weight loss journey has STARTED.

“I’ve had my gastric sleeve surgery with the incredible team at @wearetransform. I’ve struggled with my weight for years but I’m finally ready both physically & mentally to do something about it.

“The next few months are going to be tough but I’m determined to reclaim my life! NEW CHAPTER.”

In November, James revealed that he had reached his goal weight after shedding an impressive 11 stone.
