It's nothing to be taken lightly. I know that if I just work hard then I can do it. It's just about maintaining it. I've always struggled finding a happy medium. 'I believe from the research I've done, it can potentially really help me in terms of portion control.

An op is the only way I can lose weight. I see pictures of myself and it's too upsetting. The other day I had to ask my manager to put my shoes on for me because I just couldn't do it — my belly is too big. I can't do up my own shoe laces.'I don't want to die, it's as simple as that. I've been told by doctors that I am morbidly obese and need to lose weight, but I have an eating disorder, so I can't do it.'James said he's now agonising over which form of stomach surgery to have with both operations costing around £10,000 each.He's deciding between a gastric bypass, which sees part of the stomach stapled to make it smaller, and sleeve gastrectomy, which is a more permanent procedure which sees a large section of the stomach removed.Both operations will dramatically reduced the amount of food James can eat, meaning he will lose weight, and the star said he's due to decide in the coming weeks which procedure he'll have.The media personality has faced a much-publicised battle with his weight, which has drastically fluctuated since he rose to fame in 2010. In 2015, the musician was the slimmest he'd ever been, after transforming his physique by losing a whopping four stone.But since then, James' weight has crept back up, and he confessed he's now too ashamed to leave his home during the day, and waits until it's dark to go out in the hope he won't be recognised. The Essex native said that even his close friend Mark Wright has been moved to tears with concern about his size, and finally convinced him to face it by stepping on the scales.James admitted they were stunned to see he weighed nearly 27 stone, and warned him he needed to take his size seriously as it was having a serious effect on his health.
