It was only last month TOWIE’s James Argent could not even run down his road let alone the London Marathon.
Arg proved the haters wrong today as he completed the in 32nd London Marathon.
The Only Way Is Essex star finished with a time of 06:01:01 and by 5pm, had raised £3308 for Cancer Research.
The reality start seemed very proud of himself as he tweeted:
: ’6 weeks ago i was 18 stone and couldnt run down my road. Just completed London Marathon.
‘Received so much stick n lots believed i wouldnt do it but proved those Haters/Doubters wrong! Hope Grandad Seamus is proud! #CancerResearch.’
Also running the Marathon with him was also TOWIE stars Cara Kilbey and Billi Mucklow, who finished with times of 05:47:45 and 06:02:37 respectively.
