After doctors told him he could die, James Argent has undergone a life saving gastric operation to help him lose weight.

The former TOWIE star, who has been supported by pal Mark Wright, had half his stomach removed last week during a gruelling sleeve gastrectomy operation by Transform at a top clinic in Birmingham.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun two days before his operation, the 33 year old admitted: "This is the biggest operation I’ve ever had in my life – so I was scared,” Arg admits. “I did say to the surgeon: ‘Is there a chance I might not wake up?’

"He said there was a small chance."
