TOWIE’s James ‘Arg’ Argent May Have An Exciting New TV Role

The 29-year-old has returned from rehab, and is reportedly heading back to our screens...

As much as we loved the last series of TOWIE, it wasn’t quite the same without one particular familiar face.

We’re, of course, referring to original James ‘Arg’ Argent, who sat the season out after finishing a 10-week rehab stint in Thailand.

It emerged in February that Arg, 29, was seeking treatment abroad, two years after spending time in The Priory. But it seems he’s doing well since returning to the UK, and has unveiled a brand new look.

After three months away from home, he’s believed to has lost over 1st, and certainly looks to be reaping the health benefits.

His career seems to be looking up, too. It would appear the Essex fella has quite the busy work schedule, with rumours emerging that he’s set to appear on Celebs Go Dating.

Following in the footsteps of fellow TOWIE stars Joey Essex and Ferne McCann, it’s been reported that Arg has signed up to find love on the show, his first TV appearance since heading to Thailand.
