The Only Way Is Essex star Arg has confessed that he was inspired to lose weight after getting `slagged off' by footballer Joey Barton.
The 24-year-old reality TV star told a Sunday newspaper that Barton had called him "fatty" on the social networking platform twitter.
The Essex lad told the Daily Star Sunday that the QPR captain also criticised his teeth.
Barton told his follower: "Leave it u stonehenge teeth. Cheeky man giving it bigguns, leave it large undies.
"Right fatty now ur fair game. Can't believe ur giving it with them teeth like a burnt down fence."
Arg told the newspaper that he has lost almost two stone and spent £5,000 on new teeth.
He is quoted as saying: "Joey Barton had a real pop at me on Twitter.
"I don't really care now. He's just a bully.
"But the stuff he said about my teeth really got to me. I had been planning to have them fixed for a while and it did give me that extra push.
"I'm definitely looking better than Joey now!"
