Speaking on ITV’s Lorraine, Arg was glowing as he gushed to the presenter, 62, that he ‘feels like he’s winning’.

The former TOWIE star began: ‘I have come to a point where I finally feel confident. I am ready to meet someone and, as cliché as it is, you can’t love someone until you love yourself and now I can take care of myself I can take care of someone else.’

Arg divulged: ‘I did meet a woman in Mykonos, we’ve been messaging, she’s not English, she lives abroad but who knows, it’s exciting anyway.’

The TV personality has previously had high-profile relationships with his former co-stars Lydia Bright, 31, with whom he remains close friends, and Gemma ‘The GC’ Collins, 41.

Adding of his weight loss, he candidly he admitted: ‘I am still conscious when I wear swimming shorts, I go Simon Cowell style with them right up around my belly button, but I am lucky that the excess skin is minimal.

‘I had to learn very heard and tough lessons, but I don’t feel resentful, I wake up in the morning and look forward to the day ahead.  

‘There is nothing better than being clean and sober, everything that I set out to do I am now achieving.’

Arg continued: ‘I always wanted to be a wedding singer and now I am finally becoming what I want to be, The Arg Band is going from strength to strength. It is a dream come true.’

Speaking to MailOnline, he previously said his career will now be focused on his true passion and gigging with his band in Marbella is where he feels happiest.

In an exclusive interview James, who last appeared on ITVBe show TOWIE in 2018, said: ‘As much as I love doing all the stuff on TV, I’m really passionate about and my bread and butter is my band and all my singing gigs.’
