JAMES Argent looked slimmer than ever as he stepped out in Essex after being warned by doctors to put on weight.
The 34-year-old looked healthy and was snapped wearing a classic Fila tracksuit while running errands in his hometown.

Since his op in April 2021, James has managed to shed a whopping 13 stone.
And while many think he looks great, he recently revealed that he needs to put a bit of weight back on.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Het James gesê: “This is the first time in my life that I like the way I look too – I don’t feel ugly anymore – I’m content and happy with my appearance.

“The only problem now is I’ve lost a little bit too much weight and I need to put on half a stone,” he laughed.
“Everyone thinks it’s hilarious, we didn’t think we’d ever be in this situation but it’s one thing or another with me – that’s just me!”
In fact Arg is so desperate to put on a bit of weight that he was snapped stocking up on protein shakes.
It comes after he was linked to The X Factor winner Louisa Johnson last month.

Arg and Louisa, 24, were snapped leaving her gig at London’s Jazz Cafe moments apart, raising eyebrows.
Their outing came just days after it was suggested that James had reportedly found love again – a year after splitting from Gemma Collins.
