James Argent looks healthy, happy and noticeably slimmer in a new photo he has shared with fans.
He captioned the pic: “Always laughter & Banter with us two together!!!”
Arg has been absent from the latest series of ‘TOWIE’ while undergoing treatment at a rehab centre in Thailand.
The 29-year-old checked into the facility back in February and is now back home, but isn’t expected to make an immediate return to the Essex-based show.
The star is the only original member of the reality series and has appeared on the show for the last seven years.
He even refers to himself as ‘The Ian Beale of TOWIE’, in a nod to the veteran EastEnders character, played by Adam Woodyatt.
James recently took to Twitter to reassure fans that he will definitely be back on ‘The Only Way Is Essex’
He told fans: “I definitely haven’t been axed & I’m incredibly grateful to my @OnlyWayIsEssex @ITVBe Family’s who have continued to support me! #BeBackSoon.”
A ‘TOWIE’ spokeswoman said: “We are pleased that James is home and that he’s made such positive progress, however we have mutually agreed that he should take some further time before he returns to TOWIE fully.”
