Former TOWIE star James Argent has recreated David Beckham ‘s cheeky poolside shot.
James was seen lounging in a swimming pool, with his Versace swim shorts pulled down – in an identical pose to the one the former footballer struck which was shared by his wife Victoria.
James, 34, who has lost 11 stone after having gastric sleeve surgery, even sported some of David’s back tattoos in the shot, which features in Heat Magazine’s Christmas issue.
In the snap Arg soaked up some rays as he lay on the edge of the pool with his arms resting on the side of it..
He sported slightly quiffed hair as he showed off the ‘Cruz’ and crucifix tattoos.

Earlier this year, Victoria, 47, shared the snap that inspired Arg which featured hunk David taking a dip as they enjoyed a holiday in Florida in September.
She wrote alongside it: “Happy Sunday, you’re welcome.”

“I want to thank everyone for there love & support. I continuously get stopped in the street with people saying ‘keep going Arg’ & ‘You’ve got this’.
“I’ve been through a hell of a lot but I’m so lucky to have so many people behind me & that believe in me.”

He continued: “I’ve got lots to be proud of. My weight loss, My beloved @theargband & the house that I always dreamed of buying but never thought I’d be able to get.”
And looking towards his next year, Arg added: “Hopefully in 2022 I’ll meet the love of my life but most importantly stay happy & healthy! Love Always, Arg.”
