James ‘Arg’ Argent has returned to Thailand a year on from his rehab stint in the country in order to slim down. The Only Way Is Essex star, who has struggled with his weight, has vowed to shed the pounds in a luxury fitness retreat.
The 30-year-old spent three months in Thailand last year to visit rehab to battle his demons.
In a post on Instagram, Arg shared a snap of him relaxing in a swimming pool. He captioned the picture: “1 YEAR ON… Back in my favourite place for a bit of me time before filming kicks off again in a few weeks.
“So proud of how far I’ve come but never going to stop working and bettering myself. Hopefully lose a few pounds before THE FULL MONTY starts @ITV #HealthyBoy #Thailand #health #fitness #thaiboxing #calmbeforethestorm #whatadifferenceayearmakes.”
In 2017, Arg, who previously dated Lydia Bright and Gemma Collins, checked into rehab for ten weeks and shed three stone in the process.
He is set to bare all alongside Jeff Brazier, John Partridge and The Wanted’s Tom Parker on The Full Monty during a live show on ITV.
An insider told The Sun: “Arg has become increasingly body confident after revamping his lifestyle last year. He won’t have any qualms about stripping off.
“He was so touched by last year’s show and couldn’t wait to get involved.”
