James Argent 'OUT of Dancing On Ice'

Insiders claim he's taken on too much, despite auditioning

TOWIE star James Argent has walked away from Dancing On Ice several months before the start of the new series, according to a report.

The reality show cast member, 31, is reported to have pulled out of the ITV ice skating show - with tabloid sources claiming he will focus on other projects.

The Sun claims Arg hoped to drop some bulk by preparing for the reality competition on the rink.

His longtime on-off girlfriend Gemma Collins is believed to have shed over two stone during her ridiculous stint on the last series of the show.

It is claimed she burned away up to 2,500 calories a session as she trained with instructor Matt Evers.

After auditioning earlier this year, Arg looked to be following The GC in getting his face on primetime telly.

But the chances of that happening seem to have melted away after he decided against signing up for the celebrity challenge.

An unnamed source is reported to have told the newspaper’s website: "Arg has pulled out of doing Dancing on Ice.

"He was desperate to do it to lose lots of weight like Gemma did - and they were keen to have him on too as they were looking for big reality star names.

"But Arg has taken on loads of projects and Sink or Swim has been incredibly challenging for him - he can't fit anything more in."

Arg recently revealed he has piled on over ten stone in two years, making him "morbidly obese".

He has also admitted his worries that his condition could see him "become ill or die".
