GEMMA Collins says boyfriend James Argent has gained so much weight, it ruined their sex life.
The Towie star claims James spent all his time getting up and going to the toilet at night – and not pleasing her in the bedroom.
The GC opened up about Arg’s problems during an appearance on Channel 4’s Sink Or Swim.
James said he wanted to take part on the show, which sees celebrities training for a relay swim across the English Channel in support of Stand Up To Cancer, to help him take control of his weight.
And Gemma was seen telling Arg: “I can notice the difference in you. I can get my arms around you now when I cuddle you in bed.
“And when you love someone it’s not about their size or whatever, but we can’t be as we used to be in the bedroom. We can’t, no offence.”
Arg has waged a long battle with his weight – gaining an astonishing ten stone in the past two years.
He began to slim down while training for reality show Sink or Swim For Stand Up To Cancer, where celebrities attempt to swim across the channel.
“Almost half of his bodyweight is composed of fat and a lot of that fat is around the organs. Very bad in terms of long-term outcome.”
Arg later admitted: “I am a big guy so there is a lot of pressure on the heart.
“The fact my dad has heart problems, that was a big wake up call for me and I have to be careful.”
The former Towie star has apparently blitzed more than three stone after signing up to Channel 4’s new show Sink Or Swim, which put him through a gruelling training regime to get fit.
Speaking about his new-found fitness in an exclusive interview, Arg said: “It’s been fantastic for me. It’s been really good to get myself into a good routine and structure and to exercise every day.”

He added: “I feel so happy at the moment. I feel good. “I’m starting to lose weight, and the distance that I’m swimming is getting longer and longer.
“It’s really been fantastic for me.
“It’s just come at the right time. “I think we’ve been filming for about a month and a half, if that, and we’re doing the Channel swim after three months.
“So, I’m just really hoping to get my fitness and stamina up.”
