The Only Way Is Essex star James 'Arg' Argent has admitted that he hopes to lose weight in 2012.
The reality star said that he will be starting his new diet regime from New Year.
He told new! magazine: "My New Year's resolution is the same as it is every year - to lose as much weight as possible.
"I'm going to enjoy myself over Christmas, no point in saying no to all that lovely food. I'll just cut out bad habits on New Year."
He added: "I need to look at by BMI in more detail and see what is achievable.
"All I know is that I'd like these trousers to not be as tight as they are now!"
Argent added that he has no plans to get engaged to his girlfriend Lydia Bright any time soon.
He said: "Not yet, no rush for that. Lydia's only 20 and I've just turned 24."
Meanwhile, James hinted that he was considering quitting The Only Way is Essex so he could front his own TV programme.
He told The Sun: "Everyone on TOWIE wants their own show and I'd love to do one.
"I can't say too much at the moment, but let's just say I'm in talks."
He added: "My lips are sealed but I promise you're going to see a lot more of Arg, don't you worry. I'm not going anywhere fast."
