James 'Arg' Argent shows off his 7 stone weight loss as he frolics in the sea in Marbella

JAMES Argent has shown off his incredible SEVEN stone weight loss as he took a dip in the crystal waters of Marbella.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star recently shed the weight after undergoing a "life-saving" gastric band operation earlier this year.

James, 33, showed off the results of his diet and lifestyle overhaul as he splashed about in the sea while holidaying in Spain.

The reality TV star took to his Instagram stories to reveal his figure as he caught some rays in a pair of brightly-coloured swim shorts.

Having lay on a sun bed to FaceTime fellow Towie favourite Ferne McCann, he then took to the waters beside the Marbella Club Hotel.

James was snapped standing in the ocean up to his waist, splashing around as he sheltered from the sun under a pier extending out into the water.

It comes days after the star revealed his noticeably trimmer figure as he walked poolside in funky lemon-printed swimming trunks.

With temperatures hitting as high as 26 degrees in the south coast of Spain this month, James made sure to cool down by having a dip in the pool.

Back in April James underwent life-saving gastric surgery after he ballooned to nearly 27st during lockdown.

He swapped a drink and drug addiction for junk food when Covid closed gyms and pools and was told he could end up dying if he didn't do something about his weight.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun just two days after his op — which will reduce the amount he can eat — Arg said: “This is the biggest operation I’ve ever had in my life, so I was scared.

“I did say to the surgeon, ‘Is there a chance I might not wake up?’ He said there was a small chance.”

Although the star looks amazing, he has admitted that he doesn't want to stop there.

In total James would like to drop half of his original body weight, which is an impressive 14 stone in total.

Last month the star showed off his slim frame as he entertained guests at pal Elliot Wright's restaurant Olivia's in Marbella.

He looked overjoyed to be back singing in front of people in a vintage patterned white shirt, black shorts and a pair of white loafers.

Days before he was seen looking happy and healthier as he stepped out in the Spanish city with Elliott.

Elliott, 41, had to rebuild the lavish Spanish eatery after it was targeted by an arsonist weeks after his father died of Covid.

In another heartbreaking turn of events, Elliott and Sadie tragically lost their baby after she suffered a miscarriage at five months.

The couple had announced earlier in the year they were expecting their second child together before the restaurant was burnt down.

James flew out to support Elliot, who is the cousin of Heart Radio presenter and former reality star Mark Wright.
