JAMES Argent was forced to jump in the sea in his pants after forgetting his swimming trunks.
The Towie star showed off his 7 stone weight loss as he went for a swim while on a boat trip in Marbella with his co-star Elliott Wright.
The 33-year-old looked confident and happy as he stripped to his Y-fronts and leapt into the sea.
"Who goes on a boat trip and forgets trunks? @Real_Arg that's who lol," he posted on Instagram.
In the video captured by Elliott, Arg holds on to the rail of the yacht before jumping in the sea.
Arg underwent a "life-saving" weight loss operation this year, after being told by doctors that he could die if he doesn't shed the pounds.
The star shocked fans when he revealed that he had ballooned to almost 27 stone during lockdown, saying he swapped a drink and drug addiction for junk food when Covid closed gyms and pools.
The Sun exclusively revealed that Arg had the surgery to help him lose 11 stone and save his life.
Now he has set his sights on a 14 stone weight loss target – half his original body weight.
James has been spending time with his good pal Elliott and his wife Sadie, who were finally able to reopen their restaurant in Marbella four months after it burnt down.
Elliott, 41, told fans of how he had to rebuild the lavish Spanish eatery after it was targeted by an arsonist weeks after his father died of Covid-19.
In another heartbreaking turn of events, Elliott and Sadie tragically lost their baby after she suffered a miscarriage at five months.
The couple had announced earlier in the year they were expecting their second child together before the restaurant was burnt down.
James has since flown out to support his pal, who is the older brother of Heart Radio presenter and former reality star Mark Wright.
