Arg, who went from being life-threatening from 27 to 14, has vowed to swim across the English Channel as part of his continued desire to maintain a healthy weight.

The singer once attempted a swim for Channel 4’s reality show Sink Or Swim but failed to complete the full distance only covering 16 of the 21 miles.

The avid swimmer told his 820,000 followers that the weight loss has given him a huge boost in confidence. He said: “Since my operation I have followed the advice and stuck to a healthy diet with smaller portions.”

“I also trained in the gym to make myself stronger, this Channel swim across the charts.”

He added “I have never felt happier or healthier.”

Speaking about her weight loss results, the star compared her epic transformation to the incredible journey of award-winning singer Adele.

He wrote: “9 months ago I dreamed of having THAT moment @adele and here it is.”

“After turning 27, depressed and being told by doctors that I was on ‘death row’, I made the decision to have gastric sleeve surgery with @wearetransform, which has reduced the size of my stomach and limited the amount of food I could eat.
