James Argent, 34, proudly shows off his jaw-dropping weight loss on Tuesday night (17 May).
The TOWIE star and his Arg Band performed live at Sheesh in Essex, as he took to the stage to perform alongside other famous faces.
His friends flocked from across the country to show him support, including ex-girlfriend Lydia Bright, Love Islander Tommy Fury and TV personality Tom Malone.
Lydia took to Instagram to praise James for his successful music night at the star studded restaurant as she uploaded a photo of the two together.
James donned checked shirt and green chino trousers as he posed alongside Lydia who opted for a white matching two piece which flashed a hint of her torso.
She captioned the post: “Celebrating and supporting the showman himself @real_arg @theargband showcase @sheeshchigwell oh what a night, we are very proud of you.”
The two have remained friends since splitting in 2016, after an eight-year relationship.
The Arg Band was also joined by the fabulous Denise Van Outen, Megan McKenna and Che Chesterman who all took to the stage to sing alongside James.
Arg was looking trim, after loosing an eye-watering 14 stone, after undergoing gastric surgery last year.
He undertook lifestyle changes and worked hard over the last year to loose the weight after doctors told him he was on “death row” weighing 27 stone.
The gastric sleeve limited how much he could eat, and he also took advice from medical professionals to help him steadily loose weight. He said he was left feeling “depressed” being 27 stone and is now “finally happy with the man looking back” when he looks in the mirror.
He has since thanked friends, family and his fans for supporting him throughout his weight loss journey, speaking on Instagram he said: “I want to thank everyone for their love & support.
“I continuously get stopped in the street with people saying, ‘Keep going Arg’ & ‘You’ve got this.’
“I’ve been through a hell of a lot but I’m so lucky to have so many people behind me & that believe in me. I’ve got lots to be proud of.”
Since shedding the pounds, James was told to put some weight on, as he had lost too much. He has been carefully putting weight on to achieve a healthy size.
