JAMES Argent has revealed he's ready to find love and have a baby after losing two-and-a-half stone following his gastric surgery.
In his first post-operation television interview on today's Loose Women, Arg, 33, looked happy and healthy.
Revealing the impact the gastric sleeve has had on his life already, he said: "I'm so pleased sitting here today, two-and-a-half weeks after the operation.
"Weight is coming off each and every day. I'm feeling happier and healthier. I'm starting to feel like my old self again, this is really going to be a positive new chapter for me.
"Since I started the pre-op diet before the surgery. I’ve lost already two-and-a-half stones, which is a great start. I'm starting to recognise myself in the mirror again, my looks are coming back. "
Arg, whose weight soared to a dangerous 26 stone, earlier in the year is still consuming liquids after the £10,000 operation.
The former Towie star has reconnected with ex-girlfriend Lydia Bright, who has been supporting him as a friend through his recovery.
Putting their turbulent years together behind them, Arg said he is grateful to have both her and her mum Debbie back on side.
"Lydia’s been amazing," he said. "We’re not together obviously, but we’ve known each other since we were teenagers. I’m glad I’ve got her back in my life as a close friend and her mum Debbie."
Arg has already got one eye on the future and is keen to find a woman he can move into his Essex home.
The telly star revealed he is keen to become a dad and feels he's physically and mentally in the right place.
He said: "I would love to meet someone and start a family. I’m in a place I can look after myself I’m in a place where I can take care of a child."
