He may have piled on the pounds, but James 'Arg' Argent is still a big hit with the ladies

Lovable reality star James 'Arg' Argent has been ridiculed by his friends over his yo-yo weight.

But despite his heavier frame after Christmas, it appears The Only Way Is Essex star is still quite popular with the ladies.

The wedding singer, who is happily in a relationship with co-star Lydia Bright, was surrounded by attractive women as he partied in London last night.

The 23-year-old happily posed for photos with glamour model Louise Glover and Desperate Scousewives star Amanda Harrington at the Aura club in Mayfair last night.

Accompanied by best friend Mark Wright, the pair were attending their mutual friend Jermaine J-Funk's weekly club night at the venue.

Writing on his Twitter on Thursday, he said: 'Wow last night was eventful, Good times with everyone in Aura!'

Of course, fans of TOWIE will know Argent's partying with Wright has been a bone of contention in his relationship with Bright.

Although Argent has always been open about his weight battle, it looked like the women didn't mind as they flirted with the Essex lad.

Despite his unfit physique, Argent is now on a diet and fitness plan and hopes to run the London Marathon in April.

He's got a lot of work to do if he's going to run 26 miles.

Last night, it was reality show central as stars from Desperate Scousewives, The X Factor and Made In Chelsea all made an appearance.

Model Harrington, 30, has journeyed down from Liverpool for the night out and was later seen stopping her cab at the McDonald's in King's Cross on the way back to her hotel.
