JAMES Argent has promised he’ll lose weight or die trying as he shares impressive transformation snaps.
The 32-year-old former Towie star has had a well publicised battle with his weight since finding fame on the ITVBe show.
After two near-fatal drug overdoses last year, James has turned his life around and embarked on a new health and fitness regime.
Taking to Instagram on Sunday, James shared a before and after snap showing his impressive transformation so far.
He captioned it: “Get Fit or Die Tryin’”.
James’ celebrity pals were quick to share words of encouragement, with Megan McKenna writing: “Yes Arg”.
Fellow Towie star Liam Gatsby added: “Keep goin ! U got this bro.”
Meanwhile former Towie star Harry Derbidge wrote: “Proud of you arg.”
James’ latest transformation pictures come after he was seen diving into the freezing sea in Kent as he prepares for a challenge of a lifetime.
The reality star is determined to swim to Africa and it looked like he meant business ahead of battling the shark-infested waters, going on a three-hour workout in the English Channel.
Arg was seen getting greased up to prevent chafing – a serious problem for distance swimmers – before clambering into the waves.
Arg is celebrating almost a year of sobriety after kicking drugs by taking on the perilous challenge.
It will see him dodge sharks, jellyfish – and vast ocean-going tankers – on the ten-mile international journey between Spain and Morocco.
