James 'Arg' Argent piles on the pounds
James 'Arg' Argent piled on the weight straight after he finished competing on the new diet show 'Sugar Free Farm'.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star managed to drop three stone with the help of the new programme, which sees celebrities give up sugar and slave away on a farm for hours on end, but he didn't manage to completely beat the bulge and let the pounds creep back on almost immediately.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Arg's girlfriend Lydia Bright said: "He lost a lot of weight from that but he didn't completely keep that off. Arg will always be a yo-yo dieter but stabilising his weight isn't his forte."
However, the blonde beauty is thrilled her larger-than-life beau had a crack at the show and she is adamant she'll always fancy him regardless of his shape or size.
She said: "I'm glad he tried it and I love him no matter what."
Meanwhile, although 'Sugar Free Farm' didn't quite manage to get him fit and healthy, Lydia is hoping his forthcoming stint on the winter sports show 'The Jump' will improve his fitness.
She explained: "Hopefully 'The Jump' will get him fit and healthy. I'm super proud of him, a complete turnaround and I'm just so happy for him. He's so busy this year."
