JAMES Argent looked slimmer than ever as he was snapped out with former Towie co-star Lucy Mecklenburgh.
The 35-year-old happily posed for photos with Lucy and her fiancé Ryan Thomas months after undergoing a tummy tuck following his huge weightloss.
Arg looked dapper and he wore a black shirt with white trousers, while Lucy and Ryan also wore white and showed off their holiday tans.
Lucy quit Towie after the The Only Way Is Essexmas special in 2014.
The mum-of-two starred in 10 series of the reality TV show and her relationships with Mark Wright and Mario Falcone were the focus of many Essex dramas.
Arg was axed from Towie in 2021 after he failed a drugs test at the height of his battle with his weight and addictions.

Former Towie star Arg went on to shed a whopping 13 stone after undergoing gastric sleeve surgery in April 2021.
But he later told The Sun that doctors had warned him to slow down after he lost more than surgeons had planned.
He said: "The only problem now is I’ve lost a little bit too much weight and I need to put on half a stone.
"Everyone thinks it’s hilarious, we didn’t think we’d ever be in this situation but it’s one thing or another with me – that’s just me!"

At his heaviest, James weighed 27 stone, but since dropping to 14 stone, he has shown off his slim frame regularly on social media and managed to keep the weight off.
And Arg hasn't touched a drop of alcohol since he suffered a terrifying relapse almost two years ago on a night out with pals, and paramedics were called to his home.
Now he's swapped boozy nights for romantic dates and holidays with his stunning new girlfriend Stella Turian, and he spends his days boxing, swimming, and travelling the country with The Arg Band.
He told The Sun: "There's been times that I'd end up in an ambulance and be taken to hospital and things like that. But I'm a long way away from that now.
“I think it's important to remember how bad things were to stop you from thinking, ‘Oh, was it that bad?’
"Because sometimes you have to be careful. Your brain can say to you like, ‘Oh, was it really that bad? Or, ‘it will be different this time, you can control it this time’.
"Since my surgery at the start of the year I’ve been able to go on holiday with my girlfriend and my mum, and I have no hesitations about what I’m wearing and no longer panic at the prospect of taking my t-shirt off."
