In his nine years in the spotlight, Arg has been extremely candid about his weight battle as he has dangerously yo-yoed throughout his tough times. 

His recent weight gain comes in the midst of his split from Gemma, while he has also attributed his plight to his battle with substance abuse. 

He said: ‘I’m proud at myself I’ve been able to do really well career wise in the last nine months, I’ve stayed sober but instead of me going out with mates doing drugs going clothes I’m probably acting out on food.’ 

On losing wight in the past, he explained: ‘I mean I’ve done it before so I can do it again whereas before it was kind of all or nothing…

In a statement released to MailOnline, Arg, 30, said: ‘It’s not been an easy time but I’m happy to be back in a programme that gives me the ongoing support I need. 

‘I’m thankful for the incredible support I have received from my family, close friends and colleagues.’
