We all saw the incredible weight transformation that James Argent, aka Arg, from TOWIE went through, as he lost four stone and looked amazing!

But he has revealed there is something about his body that is still bothering him and he will go under the knife to get it fixed.

He has admitted he is going to have a nose job as he feels his “nostrils are huge” and that it doesn’t fit in with his face since he lost weight.

Arg has revealed all about his insecurities to The Sun and the reasons behind his decision to go under the knife.

He said: “At school my nickname was always ‘Nostrils’ because my nostrils are huge – I’ve literally never seen anyone with bigger nostrils than me!

“I’ve always known I’ve had a big nose, but where I’ve been so up and down with my weight for so many years, my nose didn’t stand out as much.

“But now I’ve lost four stone my features show a lot more and I’ve got this large bump and nostrils that are even more prominent.”

He said he would probably feel “more attractive” with his new nose and that he hopes it will help him “meet more women”.

He continued: “I think if I have the bump removed and the nostrils made smaller it will make me feel a lot more confident and be another step into helping me better myself since leaving rehab – and I’m not gonna lie, better looking and more attractive.

“I want to feel better when I take selfies as there are some I don’t upload because I’m unhappy with my nose, and yeah of course it would be great if it helped meet more women too!

“I spent three months doing Celebs Go Dating and my confidence with women is really improving, so if I can change this part of me that I don’t feel confident about I think that will make dating a lot easier.”

He added: “I’m so proud of the weight I’ve lost and I’ve got a bit more to go and some toning up to do, but I’ve completely turned my life around this year, and I feel this will just help to complete the better version of me.”

The cosmetic procedure will cost Arg £6,500 and he has done his research to make sure he has the best doctor, but admits he’s still “nervous”.

He explained: “Of course I’m nervous as it’s a relatively complex operation, and I don’t know how they go about making the nostrils smaller, but you obviously hope it turns out the way you want it to.

“Dr Frati showed me a computerised version of what I can expect the results to be like and I’m really happy with it.

“I want a nose like Ray Liotta in Goodfellas or Mark Ronson. They’ve both got really manly and Italian looking noses and that’s exactly the look I want to go for, I don’t want a tiny pixie nose, I want to look manly.”

We can’t wait to see what he’ll look like with his more ‘manly’ nose! But that’s as far as he will go when it comes to changing his features as he doesn’t want any more work done.

He said: “I don’t want to look like a Ken Doll.”
