James Argent beams after 11 stone weight loss following gastric band

James Argent has been spotted looking in high spirits after losing 11 stone.

The Towie star, who’s been open about his weight loss journey, showed his dramatic change in appearance as he headed out to run some errands.

James was pictured wrapping up for the cold weather in a puffer coat and red beanie on his way to the laundrette.

The star, who previously dated Gemma Collins, listened on his headphones as he waited in line.

The 34-year-old recently celebrated hitting his target weight following his dedicated health and fitness regime.

After reaching his heaviest weight, 27 stone, he was warned by doctors that he might die, with the star vowing to make a dramatic change.

He shared a new photo of himself at Sexy Fish restaurant (the one and the same as where Jess Glynne once got denied entry in a hoody), posing in a black polo shirt with a delicious dish on the table in front of him.

The outing comes days after Arg celebrated his birthday, telling his followers: ‘THE BIRTHDAY BOY. I can’t actually believe that I’m 34 today!

‘I want to thank everyone for there love & support. I continuously get stopped in the street with people saying “keep going Arg” & “You’ve got this”. 

‘I’ve been through a hell of a lot but I’m so lucky to have so many people behind me & that believe in me.’

Arg took a moment to look back on his achievements, adding: ‘I’ve got lots to be proud of. My weight loss, My beloved @theargband & the house that I always dreamed of buying but never thought I’d be able to get.’

He joked: ‘Hopefully in 2022 I’ll meet the love of my life, but most importantly stay happy & healthy! Love Always, Arg.’

Earlier this year, Arg had gastric band surgery, which removed 70% of his stomach.

Previously speaking to Steph McGovern, the star said: ‘I’m four stone lighter now. It’s a really good start. Four stone out of 11 or 12 might seem like a drop in the ocean but I’m pleased I’ve made progress already.

‘I feel so much happier already, I feel healthier already, I’m lighter on my toes, I’m more confident. I’m really loving life at the moment.’
