The Only Way Is Essex's James 'Arg' Argent has been dumped by a diet club for not losing any weight.
The cheeky chubster - who currently weighs in at 18 stone - had signed up to be an ambassador for The Lighter Life's weight-loss plan, but has been ditched by the group after failing to lose even a pound and being spotted gorging on a range of calorific treats.
A spokesperson for the diet experts told the Daily Star newspaper: "It became more and more apparent that James couldn't commit to our programme and didn't lose any weight. James is a lovely guy but we cannot have someone in the public eye linked to our diet plan if they haven't got slimmer.
"We also caught him with a lasagne and chips, and that's not a meal we would advise our members to have."
However, the tubby TV star could be set to enlist the help of Manchester United ace Rio Ferdinand, who is reportedly desperate to whip him into shape.
An insider recently revealed: "Rio has become addicted to the show and says it's the only way he can relax on a Friday before a big game. It was so funny hearing him talk about how much he loves the Essex gang and how he looks forward to massive catch-up sessions.
"He also kept saying how he wants to help Arg get fit and train him."
