James 'Arg' Argent wants to take part in 'Dancing On Ice' when his time on 'The Only Way Is Essex' draws to a close.
The 23-year-old crooner - who is dating co-star Lydia Bright - is keen to spread his wings once his spell on the ITV2 reality show comes to an end, and he thinks the celebrity skating competition would provide the perfect opportunity for him to shape up.
He said: "I've still got more to offer. But next year I wouldn't mind doing 'Dancing On Ice' or 'Strictly Come Dancing'. It would be good for losing weight. I've got the moves ... like Jagger!"
'TOWIE' has seen a number of its original members quit the series - including Mark Wright, Kirk Norcross and Amy Childs - but James believes he is one of the few remaining stars on the show because he has "stayed true" to himself and shunned the celebrity lifestyle.
He added in an interview with Star magazine: "I've really stayed true to myself. Even though I'm a celebrity now, I don't act like one. I'm still doing my wedding singing.
"There was no way Amy Childs could come back and pretend to work in a salon, but with me, it's still real."
