James Argent looks thinner than ever after revealing doctors have told him to put ON weight after 13st weight loss

JAMES Argent looks thinner than ever after revealing doctors have told him to put ON weight after 13 stone weight loss.

The former Towie star underwent life-saving gastric surgery last April after ballooning to 27 stones.

Since then James has proudly shown off his new look on social media.

Yesterday he showed off his slim frame as he posed for a picture outside Roslin Beach Hotel in Southend-on-Sea.

The reality favourite was all smiles standing on a balcony in a black t-shirt, matching jeans and a hoodie wrapped around his waist.

He completed the look with a pair of black trainers and a silver watch around his wrist.

Since his life-saving gastric sleeve op in April 2021, James has managed to shed a whopping 13 stone.

And while many think he looks great, the star recently revealed that he needs to put a bit of weight back on.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, James said: "This is the first time in my life that I like the way I look too – I don’t feel ugly anymore – I’m content and happy with my appearance.

"The only problem now is I’ve lost a little bit too much weight and I need to put on half a stone,” he laughed.

“Everyone thinks it’s hilarious, we didn’t think we’d ever be in this situation but it’s one thing or another with me – that’s just me!”

James ballooned to 26st 13lb in 2020 after bingeing on junk food during the pandemic.
