Name: James "Arg" Argent
Occupation: Crooner and former hospital radio DJ
About: The lovable yet inappropriate Arg shed the pounds when he ran the 2011 London Marathon and then put them back on despite the odd Marbs bootcamp here and there! Arg is looking out for love, which might be easier to do now he's finally moved out of his mum Pat's place and into the same building as Jess and Elliott.
TOWIE tree: Arg was in a long-term relationship with Lydia. Howevs, Lydia moved on after hearing rumours he cheated on her. Much to Arg's disgust, Lydia hooked up with his former friend, Tom Kilbey. Arg has since gone out with Gemma, but admits he did it on the rebound. Joey tried to fix him up with his old schoolmate Jasmin, but he ended running away from her. Then he got frisky with Gemma in a bush (!) and at a murder mystery shindig (!!) before telling Gem no more! Gem got her revenge by pretending to be a skinny posh girl from Fulham who fancied him. Weird, but funny.
Of course, this wasn't the end of the Arg and Gemma story. Arg claimed to have slept with Gem in Vegas. Gem strongly disputed this. Who was telling the truth?! It's one of TOWIE's great mysteries (like why the Essex lot dye their dogs a different colour).
Arg and Gem recently got jiggy in a cupboard at a food party, but their casual flings could finally be a thing of the past now Arg's first love, Lydia, is back on the Essex scene.
