JAMES 'Arg' Argent showed off his impressive 4st weight loss as he cosied up to a mystery blonde at a charity football match.
The 33-year-old, who underwent a gastric band op after he ballooned to 27 stone in lockdown, displayed a slimmed-down frame.
The reality star attended a charity footie match at Billericay Town Football Club on Saturday.
He was seen chatting to a mystery blonde as they watched the game together from the sidelines.
Arg looked in good spirits as he enjoyed a kick about on the pitch, showing off his ball skills.
The former Towie star wore a pale patterned blue short-sleeve shirt with a pair of light grey trousers and brown shoes.
He was later spotted cosying up with a female pal who was wearing a neon pink blouse.
The pair were seen laughing and chatting as they watched the football match from the VIP stand.
Arg's friend was then seen giving him a hug and a kiss on the cheek, they then got closer as they put their arms around each other.
His pal wore a bright fuchsia dress teamed with a a chic quilted black handbag.
The charity match, which was hosted by reality star Saffron Lempriere, also featured Dan Osborne, Towie's Harry Lee, comedian Man Like Haks and former West Ham player Paul Konchesky.
The event is in aid of the mental health charity Mind in Mid and North-East Essex and Dogs Trust in Basildon, Harp Homelessness in Southend and Haven House Children's Hospice.
Arg's outing comes after it was reported that he is set to reunite with ex Lydia Bright after his on-off girlfriend Gemma Collins hooked up with her former flame Rami Hawash.
The pair have met up on several occasions over the last few weeks and are rekindling their romance.
Towie sources say Arg is more keen than Lydia, 30, to start things up again having broken up five years ago.
One source said: “Arg is trying work his way back in but Lydia isn’t daft. Arg has had his issues and she’s a mum now.
“This weightloss battle is a good way for Arg to prove to Lydia he’s a new man and all that is behind him.”
Arg has faced a battle with his weight with the reality star having a gastric op to help him lose 12 stone, doctors had warned he was "so fat he could die".
Arg is determined to lose a stone every month until 2022 and has enlisted the help of good pal Ferne McCann.
The pair have been training together with James showing off his new slimmed-down look in a swimming session.
A pal said: “Ferne and James are really good friends. She’s been a huge support to him.”
