JAMES Argent showed off his slim look as he celebrated his birthday at a popular celeb haunt.
The former Towie star marked turning 35 after successfully battling his drug addiction and losing 14st.
He was praised by his pal Ohara Davies as they partied at Sheesh in Chigwell, Essex.
Ohara said: "Celebrating a friend's birthday, so much progress, everybody's proud."
Arg looked happy and healthy in a green suit with a black shirt which showed off his slim frame.
He appeared to ignore his ex-girlfriend Gemma Collins' brutal swipe earlier this week.
