James Argent works up a sweat as he works out with weights after celebrating one year sober

JAMES Argent was seen building up a sweat as he worked out with weights after celebrating one year of sobriety.

The reality star had determined look on his face as he took part in the solo exercise session near his Essex home.

James, 33, had a weight in each hand as he incorporated a fast-paced walk with a bit of boxercise.

The TOWIE fave was dressed accordingly in an all-black tracksuit, with a padded jacket to keep out the chill.

James, nicknamed Arg, last week marked a year of sobriety after a near fatal overdose.

He shared a pic of his CA badges on his Instagram stories, which display the words, '1 year' on one and the other reads "faith, hope and courage".

"One year clean and sober… a huge milestone I'm extremely proud of," he captioned the photo and added a prayer hands emoji.

Arg shared his remarkable year in a video with his fans where he opened up about his brush with death and feeling amazing for being sober.

"A year ago today on my birthday I was rushed into hospital after a near fatal drug overdose," he said in the video.

"Today I’m over 11 months clean & sober, If I can achieve this in 2020 with everything against me then I believe I can achieve anything.

"Thank you for your love & best wishes. I will continue to make my Family, Friends & supporters proud of me."

The star, who is Gemma Collins' ex-boyfriend, is determined to swim to Africa as his next challenge, and has been training hard.

It will see him dodge sharks, jellyfish – and vast ocean-going tankers – on the ten-mile international journey between Spain and Morocco.

He saw 2020 out with an intense outdoor gym session and built up a serious sweat as he jumped up and down outside Romford's VIP HQ.

Trainers from the Essex gym were also seen giving the TOWIE favourite encouragement.
