He has transformed his life over the past year, losing an incredible 14 stone and overcoming addiction.
The former TOWIE star, 34, feels that now he is ‘fit and health’ the show would be a perfect challenge for him.
New challenge: James Argent has now revealed he wants to follow in Joey Essex’s footsteps and sign up for Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins following his 13st weight loss
Last year, James’ weight ballooned to 27 stone after he replaced his cocaine habit with unhealthy eating.
He has since lost a staggering 13 stone after surgery saw 70 percent of his stomach removed in the £10,000 operation.
James told The Sun, he said: ‘Celebrity SAS, I’d love to do that one day. I think that would be a great show for me.
‘Joey Essex is one of my best friends. I actually watched the series with him when it went out and he did really well. I was super, super proud of him.’
Reality TV star: TOWIE’s Joey took part in the 2020 series of the gruelling reality show, quitting after an intense interrogation.
He continued: ‘I think a lot of the SAS is all about stories of people that have been through a lot and made it through to the other side.
‘I think the fact that I’ve battled with addiction and I kind of got through that and I battled with an eating disorder and I’ve got through that.
‘The fact I was 27 stone, now I’m 13 stone, and I’m actually fit and healthy, and I feel like I’d be able to actually shock people and do pretty well on it, maybe I’ll be considered next time. That would be great.’
