TOWIE (The Only Way Is Essex) fans have been thrown into a theme park full of emotions in the last 48 hours with reports of James ‘Arg’ Argent, 26, being reported missing on Friday morning. The reality TV star, who is known as Arg in the well known Essex reality TV program failed to meet his agent at Gatwick airport as planned prior to a work commitment in Majorca. James was last seen at his home in Woodford Green, Essex around 3am on Friday, and was reported missing to police shortly after his non appearance at Gatwick by his mother.
As concerned fans nationwide prayed for James, a twitter hashtag #PrayForArg had soon started to build it’s own little trend, with fans of all ages hoping for James to make a safe return. Around 24 hours after he had last been seen, James made contact with his parents to let them know he was perfectly safe and well, although his phone was unfortunately broken and on his way to Blackpool for another work related stunt.
James has been a star of the reality TV show TOWIE since it was first aired on our screens in 2010, one of the favourite stars of the show, James is known to be a ladies man, part-time singer, entertainer and comedian rolled into one. With on screen romances with his friend Gemma Collins and his long-term ex girlfriend Lydia Bright it came as no surprise that James last tweet before the star was reported missing was to Lydia urging her to hurry back home from Italy.
Now James is known to be perfectly safe and well, the humour and banter can be seen throughout social media platforms online with pranksters causing the #PrayForArg hashtag to trend. Concerned fans are clearly relieved to hear the star is not in no grave danger, whilst other users are suspecting it to be a PR stunt. Either way, we’re glad to hear he is safe and well, and look forward to welcoming him back to our screens shortly.
