Mark Wright reunites with a slimmer than ever James Argent 11 years after Towie exit

MARK Wright and good pal James Argent reunited in a London pub yesterday 11 years after he quit Towie.

The Essex lads looked delighted to be hanging out as they each slung an arm around the other and laughed for a natural snap.



Happy Arg, 34, who is looking slimmer than ever after losing 13 stone, shared the picture on Instagram and wrote: "I get by with a little help from my friends #Marg🤗 @wrighty_ ❤️."

Mark, 35, responded by commenting "My guy" while Denise van Outen left a love heart underneath.

Last year Arg revealed fitness fanatic Mark was reduced to tears after seeing his extreme weight gain.

The popular Towie star, who quit the show in 2018, was told his life was at risk after he ballooned to 27 stone.

"There’s no reason why I can’t achieve all of those things too when I’ve lost weight.

“He wants to help me and told me ‘get on the scales’. It’s embarrassing to say, but they were so upset when they saw I was nearly 27 stone.
