'The Only Way is Essex' star James 'Arg' Argent is keen to shed another three stone, despite recently admitting he has already lost two stone since Christmas
James 'Arg' Argent wants to lose another three stone.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star - whose weight has fluctuated in the past - recently revealed he has shed two stone in a bid to win back former girlfriend Lydia Bright but admits he still isn't happy with his weight and would love to lose a bit more.
Speaking in a Cadillac at the VIP launch of the Direct Line Drive In, at north London's Brent Cross Shopping Centre on Tuesday night (05.08.14), he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I was the biggest I've ever been around Christmas time, I got myself in a bit of a rut. Since then I've knocked off a couple of stone but I'm not quite where I want to be, I've got a way to go.
"I want to lose at least another two or three and then I'll be happy. I want to carry on my boxing and stuff."
The 26-year-old star and the 23-year-old beauty - who split in 2012 - recently rekindled on the ITV2 reality show and admitted they have slept together during the recent series, but the crooner admits the pair are not quite boyfriend and girlfriend again just yet.
He added: "Things are going really, really, well. Me and Lydia had a great series last series and we've rekindled a nice friendship. We've been seeing each other and it's been really nice.
"We're not officially boyfriend and girlfriend but all I can say is we're enjoying each other's company so we'll have to see what happens.
