Arg and Gemma

TOWIE love birds Arg and Gemma have split up ahead of the new series, it's been revealed.

The Only Way Is Essex's James 'Arg' Argent and Gemma Collins began dating this year, but they will be starting the new series apart.

The break up will feature in next weekend's opening episode, as Gemma gets annoyed with their constant rows.

A source told The Sun: "Arg also went to Ibiza a few weeks ago and didn’t take Gemma, which infuriated her.”

According to Now magazine the pair have been on a "break" for a while, with Arg even recently enjoying a lads night out recently.

A source told the magazine this week: "He was drinking with lots of girls and having a great time. He told me that they've split. It was a long time coming."

Fellow TOWIE member Tom Pearce said: "I spoke to James and he said things weren't looking too good with Gemma. They're on a bit of a break now."

The Only Way Is Essex airs on ITV2 from Sunday, September 30.
