Actor James is so committed towards this challenge that he is now taking the help of reality TV actor Tommy Fury‘s brother Tyson who is boxing athlete to lose weight. An insider told The Sun:

“He has asked Tyson if he can help him shift the pounds because if he doesn’t do something drastic, his health is at risk.

“He is great friends with Tyson, and he has agreed to help him out. Arg gets on much better when he is doing something he enjoys, like being in a boxing gym.

“Tyson has said he can give him tips and advice to train efficiently. He said diet and discipline was a key factor and that is where Arg really needs to sort himself out.”
