James 'Arg' Argent drops 3st on new diet show

James 'Arg' Argent has reportedly dropped three stone after signing up to the new diet show 'Sugar Free Farm'.

The 'Only Way is Essex' star, who has battled with his weight most of his life, may have finally beaten the bulge once and for all after he took part in a new weightloss programme.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "ITV think they're on to a winner with this one. Diets, especially sugar, are a hot topic right now and people enjoy watching slightly portly celebrities being put through their paces.

"The fact they have all lost a good amount of weight will be good for viewing figures too."

The sweet-tasting show will see comic Rory Bremner, former 'Loose Women' panellist Jane McDonald and ex-'Coronation Street' actress Tupele Dorgu attempt to shed the extra pounds by ditching the naughty calorific treats in favour of working up a sweat as they muck out on a farm.

The programme, which was shot last year, will hit screens later this month and will see all the celebrities lose weight - between one and three stone - as they turn away from nasty processed meals and munch on good, natural grub.

Meanwhile, it seems James' recent weightloss may have something to do with the fact he's signed up to take part in the forthcoming series of the winter sports show, 'The Jump.'

The 28-year-old reality TV star confirmed he'd signed a contract late last year when he wrote on Twitter: "I'm sure it's going to be tough but great entertainment for you guys!"
