James Argent goes shirtless on beach in Spain as he displays incredible 9.5st weight loss

James Argent showed off his incredible weight loss on Friday during a beach day in Marbella, Spain, after losing 9.5 stone.

The former TOWIE star, 33, underwent life-saving gastric sleeve surgery earlier this year after his weight hit 27 stone during the coronavirus lockdown.

James is currently enjoying the sun in Marbella and looked confident as he walked shirtless down the beach and dipped his toes in the sea.

The television personality looked at-ease and relaxed as he soaked up the rays wearing a pair of yellow flip-flops and patterned light blue shorts.

James struggled with his weight last year after coronavirus lockdowns meant the gyms were closed and he couldn’t stick to his usual swimming schedule.

However, he decided to undergo a life-saving gastric sleeve surgery earlier this year after his weight hit 27 stone.

In a post to Instagram back in April, Arg proudly shared: "Today Is the First Day of the Rest of My Life. My weight loss journey has STARTED.

"I’ve had my gastric sleeve surgery with the incredible team at @wearetransform. I’ve struggled with my weight for years but I'm finally ready both physically & mentally to do something about it.

"The next few months are going to be tough but I’m determined to reclaim my life! NEW CHAPTER."

James has also been hitting the gym and focusing on eating nutritiously dense, healthy foods to lose weight.

Speaking on Steph’s Packed Lunch about his weight loss journey recently, James explained: “It felt horrible, I was always extremely uncomfortable, I couldn't look at myself in the mirror.

“It felt depressing and it just wasn't me. Now I'm starting to feel like myself again and I'm excited about what the future is going to bring.”
