James 'Arg' Argent has been warned staying on The Only Way Is Essex could see him back in rehab.

The TOWIE star hit headlines this week after rowing with girlfriend Lydia Bright as the show's cast filmed in Marbs.

Lydia was seen in tears after a drunken argument with Arg in a nightclub.

A source spilled: "Arg was meant to be on the straight and narrow, so Lydia was hurt and upset when she saw him on the booze again.

"She's had a hard time trusting him and in the past and was worried about him sleeping back into his old habits. This was supposed to be a fresh start for him."

Speaking to New! magazine this week, behavioural psychologist Jo Hemmings had some blunt words of advice for Arg.

She said: "He went to rehab to curb his party lifestyle, so being in this environment could be a disaster for him.

"If he isn't careful, he could end up back in rehab. I recommend he quits the show or lose it all."

However an insider tells Star magazine that the the drunken night in Marbs was a 'one off' and he's determined to make things up to Lydia.

"Arg is taking his recovery very seriously and won't be drinking any more during the trip," the source said. "Having Lydia's trust is his top priority and he doesn't want to risk their relationship again."

The Only Way Is Essex starts its fifteen series this Sunday night on ITVBe.
