After the couple posed for a picture next to the ring itself, coach Tom showed how far James has come in his weight loss journey by posting a snap and video taken before his surgery.

By writing the caption: ‘It’s wild what a year can do …’ the video showed Arg in a black tracksuit showing that he himself could then strike a blow.

It comes after James revealed he hopes to ‘dent up’ and recover half a stone after doctors became concerned about the speed of his weight loss.

In an interview with The Mirror, the TV personality said his surgeon had predicted he would reach his weight target of 15.7lb within 18 months.

Arg, who now weighs 14.5 stones just nine months after surgery, said he needs to go for regular blood tests to make sure he is getting the nutrients he needs.

He said, ‘I’ve lost a little more than I wanted, so I want to be more toned, fill up a little bit, and maybe even put half a stone on.’

The TV star also talked about how his battle with weight prior to surgery and how his love of food quickly became an addiction.

Arg gained weight during the lockdown as he turned to overeating after battling a cocaine addiction, but he has now swapped fatty fast food for fish and chicken salads, while nuts and bananas are his favorite snacks.

In a speech on Loose Women on Tuesday, Arg spoke about his eating disorder in an investigative segment.

He said: ‘I’ve been suffering from an eating disorder for over half of my life, and although people may think that condition is quite rare, more people actually suffer from overeating disorders than they do from anorexia and bulimia. ‘

During VT, James spoke to his mother, Patricia, and asked, ‘When did you notice that something was wrong with me?’

She replied: ‘Lockdown is when it started sneaking up on you. You seemed to be putting on weight every week, and I noticed that you were not moving as much as you could have been, and you just did not seem to like yourself. ‘

James went on to explain that he was’ so image-conscious’ and said, ‘I hated the way I looked. I would wait until it was dark to leave the house. I think a massive, massive turning point for me was when you came into my room and I was lying there.

‘It was during the day and I was just so tired, so uncomfortable, I was so depressed that I didn’t feel like getting out of bed. You came in and you just really cried. I remember you saying, ‘I do not recognize my son.’

Patricia looked down and said, ‘I remember that day, James.’
