James Argent looked dramatically different as he showed off his newly-trimmed physique – after shedding a whopping 13 stone in weight.
The former TOWIE star, 34, was almost unrecognisable as he stepped outside for a swim at a pool in Essex.
Smiling Arg went shirtless for the occasion – and it highlighted just how much weight he'd lost after going in for life-saving surgery.
The Celebs Go Dating alum looked incredible by the water – and he seemed proud to be sporting his slimmed-down figure in front of the cameras.
Despite the chilly temperatures, confident Arg headed for a dip in the pool as part of his impressive fitness regime.
The TV star was snapped wearing a pair of guitar-print swimming shorts and a pair of flip-flops.
Not letting the cold air get to him, he swam a number of lengths in the pool before climbing out to have a shower and put on a pair of stylish sliders.

Speaking about his surgery, Arg explained that he reached his largest size during the pandemic – and that he was close to death.
He said: "I reached the heaviest I've ever been in the height of the pandemic."
"Doctors said I was dicing with death because I've got bad asthma and was morbidly obese, which was the worst possible combination if I was to catch Covid."
"I could have been a goner, so I just knew I had to do something."
