James Argent makes weight loss pledge

Share article:

James "Arg" Argent wants to go on "Dancing On Ice" - but plans to lose seven stone first.

The 31-year-old reality star has been a firm fixture down at the rink supporting his girlfriend Gemma Collins and her partner Matt Evers - who were voted off the show over the weekend - and he admitted he's keen to follow in her footsteps next year, but needs to get back in shape first.

He told The Sun Online: "If I was to do "Dancing On Ice" next year I'd want to lose seven stone. By this time next year I'd be a year and a half sober so I'd be in a pretty good position to do it.

"Gemma would love to see me do the show, purely for the fact that I'd go through everything that she's gone through."

Arg - who previously shed four stone in 2015 - enjoys exercising so plans to stay as active as he possibly can in his bid to beat the bulge.

He added: "I love boxing as well as running, walking and tennis - that's kind of the sport I'm going to be doing."

The "Only Way is Essex" star thinks Gemma - who shed two-and-a-half stone on the show - looks "great" following months of training for the skating competition and while he hopes she'll keep working hard to stay fit and healthy, it isn't something he'll be pressuring her to do.

He said: "She looks great at the moment. It would be good if she could continue her fitness, but that's down to Gemma.

"It was never about her being fit - I just wanted to push her to do as well as she possibly could have done in the competition."

Last year, Arg went to rehab for the third time to battle alcohol and drug addictions and he's overhauled his lifestyle to try and stay on track.

He said: "I won't be going on any boys" holidays any time soon.

"I'll be away with Gemma and spend my holidays with either close family or friends, and going to nice places.

""ve got my Spanish tour and a lot of gigs."
