TOWIE star James Arg Argent has said he is looking forward to "showing off the new him" when he joins his co-stars in Mallorca to film for next series.

Fans will know that our Essex faves are headed to Palma, Mallorca to kickstart TOWIE's eighteenth series. Bobby Norris recently revealed the cast's filming location exclusively to Reveal, and when Arg reunites with his co-stars overseas, he is hoping to surprise them with his new image.

For the last two months, Arg has been at No 1 Bootcamp to help get himself back into shape. His efforts have seen him lose three stone and his results are clearly visible in his latest Instagram post.

Arg shared a selfie on board his flight to Mallorca, as he caught his friend and boxer Ohara Davies sleeping on the plane next to him. He told his followers: "There was no way I was letting @oharadavies sleep on the plane #SleepingsCheating The Only Way Is Majorca!!!"

During the last series of TOWIE, Arg had vowed to lose weight after revealing he had put on four stone in the last year. He stuck by his word and following his split with ex-girlfriend Lydia Bright, Arg enrolled into boot camp.

He joined No 1 Bootcamp both in Norfolk and Ibiza to embark on a military-inspired training programme, that included early 6am morning starts, circuit training, hikes and boxercise.

His hard work has definitely paid off. Just six weeks into his programme, Arg revealed he had lost 30lbs. Now he has completed his stay, Arg's weight has reduced from 19 stone to 16 stone and he has lost eight inches from around his waist.

Speaking about his weight, Arg has said: "I always know that I am trouble when my weight pushes to near 20-st. That really is the wake up call I need to sort myself out. My trouble is, I just love my treats and chocolate and sometimes I don't know when to stop."

He revealed his inspiration was his TOWIE co-star Kate Wright, who actually paid a visit to him at boot camp, claiming that he'd like to have the "male equivalent" to her figure.

Arg's motivation was his trip to Mallorca with the TOWIE lot and when it comes to filming, the reality star is just hoping to have some fun. He doesn't seem phased about coming face-to-face with Lydia, after admitting they haven't spoken since their split, and has ruled out any hopes of romance too.

Arg added: "I am young, free and single and not looking for anything more than that at present. Majorca is going to be a lot of fun. I look forward to showing off the new me."

News of his and Lydia's break up first surfaced in May - although Lydia later revealed they had split up seven weeks prior to the public finding out. Their split came amid reports that Arg's partying 'had got out of hand' again - although neither have confirmed the reasons for calling time on their relationship.

Lydia, meanwhile, has said she is "happier than ever".
