Ferne McCann says James Argent inspires her as she speaks on his weight loss
Ferne McCann has confessed her close friend James 'Arg' Argent inspires her to "be better" as he continues to be active in his weight loss journey.
James had a gastric sleeve operation back in April this year and has been working hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Since his surgery, he's already lost 9.5 stone.
Reality star Ferne, who recently admitted her biggest worry as a parent to daughter Sunday, three, spoke out about his new lifestyle to becoming healthier during an exclusive chat with OK! Online about the L.O.L. Surprise! LIVE VIP Party tour.
"I can only speak on behalf of myself, I'm active, I'm very much into my healthy living and I know that he's recently had an amazing transformation," she shared.
Ferne continued: "He's looking great, he's definitely into his fitness and into his swimming.
"If anything he's inspired me. You know, I've not been in a swimming pool for ages and he's like, 'Come on! You'll love it!' I think we're going to do a bit of boxing together and I think that's what friends are for – inspiring each other to be better and do better."
The TV personality went on to tell OK!: "Arg is a very close friend of mine and I guess you could say he's like a brother to me, for sure. I care a lot about him and we've got a lot of history, obviously from TOWIE, and he's a very very close friend of mine.
"People like Arg, they've been around from the start of Sunday's life as well so they've seen me kind of become a mother and all the ups and downs that you go through. And you're there for each other through the thick and thin. He is like a brother to me."
Later, Ferne spoke out about her daughter Sunday, three, starting school and described it as a "real milestone" that left her both excited and emotional.
"She's finished nursery, she's been there since she was eight months old and now she's nearly four and it's such a big moment for her and for me. I'm very proud of her.

"I feel so pleased that we got to capture that on First Time Mum," she explained.
The star added: "It was a big moment and she settled in so well in school, I've seen a real positive change in Sunday. I'm excited for her to learn more, it's really nice as her mum when she comes home when she's like, 'I've learned this!'"
Ferne is promoting the Surprise! LIVE VIP Party tour taking place next month as she explained how excited she is to take her daughter, three, to a concert for the first time.
"For me, when I was younger, I used to love going to concerts. So it'll be really nice that I'll be able to take Sunday to a concert, she's never experienced anything like that before," she said.
