Fans congratulate Arg after he reveals weight loss

The TOWIE star has been trying to slim

James ‘Arg’ Argent recently vowed to lose weight for the sake of his health and now he has impressed with his latest picture on Instagram.

The TOWIE star revealed his weight loss in a new pic. He was stood next to Love Island‘s Michael Griffiths in the snap, after they bumped into each other at This Morning‘s ITV studio.

It comes after 31-year-old Arg was told he would need to shed around 10st to be in a healthy weight bracket.

Arg captioned his post with: “I had a nice time popping into @thismorning today. It was nice to meet @mac_griffiths_ he’s a lovely lad! I wish everyone who takes part in @loveisland all the best and hope they get as much out of it as possible! I’m nine years in this game and I know it’s not always easy, make it work for you.”

But the reality star’s fans were more distracted by his slimmer frame!

“Looking good Arg, keep going with that weight loss,” wrote one follower.

Another added: “Keep up the good work Arg, weight’s falling off you.”

A third wrote: “Wow look at you Arg, well done.”

And a fourth gushed: “Arg looking so much better, well done.”

In May, Arg announced on national television that he wanted to make a big change after fearing for his health.

Speaking during an interview on This Morning, he told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “I’m proud at myself I’ve been able to do really well career wise in the last nine months, I’ve stayed sober but instead of me going out with mates doing drugs, I’m probably acting out on food.”

Arg admitted it will be a long road, adding: “It’s quite scary. Ten stone is a hell of a lot of weight, it seems like a marathon. It’s not going to be a quick fix.”

This Morning’s resident medic, Dr Ranj, advised Arg that he needs to shed a whopping 10st and 17 inches from his waistline to be in the healthier body mass zone.
