Mark Wright is helping best pal James 'Arg' Argent to keep up his fitness regime.

Last month TOWIE star Arg declared that he wanted to get back in shape - for good this time.

Having been open about his recent weight struggles, Arg is determined to cut back on the sugar and adopt a healthier lifestyle.

At the weekend he met up with best mate and former TOWIE star Mark, where he revealed to fans via Twitter: "He picked me up for Sunday lunch & drags me down to the gym instead lol! Typical @wrighty_ #FeelingGood."

While some fans commented on MARG being back together again, others also said that Mark is a "great friend" and wished Arg the best of luck with his new fitness regime.

Arg, who filmed ITV's Sugar Free Farm late last year, enjoyed a sparring session in the boxing ring with co-star Jake Hall on Sunday's episode where he said he already felt like he was losing weight.

Jake and Tommy Mallet did play a little trick on Arg though, by giving him a pair of rigged scales to wind him up!

Arg told girlfriend Lydia Bright during an episode last month (20 March): "Enough's enough, I need to get this weight off once and for all."

Arg also has a clear goal in mind. He recently told fans that he wants to achieve a similar weight to when he was on holiday in Dubai in April last year.

"I'm getting back to this ASAP, Watch this space!!!" he said.
