James Argent has shown off his weight loss after undergoing gastric bypass surgery as he jetted to Marbella for work.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star was spotted grinning as he stepped out with a noticeably slimmer waistline after an impressive five and a half stone weight loss.

The 33-year-old headed to Spain for the relaunch of pal Elliott Wright's Olivia La Cala to sing for the first diners through the door.

Snaps of the relaunch show James taking selfies with fans, cutting a trim figure in a pair of beige trousers and a blue shirt, showing he's returning to his singer career with a new found confidence.

The venue, owned by Elliott and his wife Sadie, reopened to great fanfare four months after it burnt down.

The couple had to rebuild their Spanish restaurant after it was targeted by arsonists week after his father died after contracting the coronavirus.

Sadly, the pair experienced more heartbreak when Sadie had a miscarriage at five months.

James has flown out to Spain to support his friend, who is the older brother of former reality star Mark Wright, and last week filmed himself dining out at the newly reopened restaurant.

Recently, he has been keeping himself busy with his career and just weeks ago, surprised a happy couple on their wedding day to perform a rendition of My Girl.

Arg has set his sights on losing half his body weight, with pals saying he's binned all his XXL clothes in his bid to drop to 13 stone.

A source told The Sun: “James has never felt better in his life and the weight has dropped off far more quickly than he ever expected. It's made him realise he can lose even more weight so he plans to just go for it.

"The only downside is he is having to buy a whole new wardrobe. But he’s binning those items he no longer wears or which drown him so he’s not tempted to pile back on the pounds.

"James is making a change for life.”
