James 'Arg' Argent swamped by baggy shirt as he proudly shows off 5.5 stone weight loss after gastric surgery

JAMES 'Arg' Argent is swamped by his baggy shirt while proudly showing off his 5.5 stone weight loss after gastric surgery.

The 33-year-old star is noticeably thinner after having the life-saving operation earlier this year.

The former Towie favourite proudly beamed as he revealed his new furniture on Instagram today.

Arg posed on the large arm-chair, and matching sofa in the new snaps, plugging the brand in the post's caption as he wrote: "I don’t know anyone who likes to chill as much as me 🤣

"Especially after all the swimming I’m doing, So this is a dream come true 🙌🏼"

In the pics, Arg is wearing a blue shirt and beige trousers, complete with a pair of brown loafers.

The shirt falls loosely around his trimmer frame, drawing attention to his impressive weight loss.

The star shocked fans when he revealed that he had ballooned to almost 27 stone during lockdown, saying he swapped a drink and drug addiction for junk food when Covid closed gyms and pools.

The Sun exclusively revealed that Arg had the surgery to help him lose 11 stone and save his life.

Now he hopes to slim down to 16st after having half his stomach removed during the £10,000 procedure.

Last month, The Sun told how the Towie star said "he feels 10 years younger" since shedding the pounds – but he’s still got three stone to go.

Arg hit 27st when he underwent lifesaving stomach-surgery in April after doctors warned him: “Lose weight or die."

Now he's feeling better than ever after the op helped controlled his diet, which spiralled out of control in lockdown.

Arg said his shocking weight gain left best friend Mark Wright and footballer brother Josh, who run a fitness company together, in tears when they stepped in to help their childhood pal.

Speaking about his weight loss on Steph’s Packed Lunch, Arg said: “It felt horrible, I was always extremely uncomfortable, I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror.

“It felt depressing and it just wasn’t me. Now I’m starting to feel like myself again and I’m excited about what the future is going to bring.

“It was scary being 27 stone… It was serious, doctors were telling me how dangerous it was… I knew it was something I had to address pretty quickly.”
