Reality star James 'Arg' Argent will miss 'The Only Way Is Essex' Christmas special after he was suspended from the last series amid claims that he failed a drugs test
James 'Arg' Argent will miss 'The Only Way Is Essex' Christmas special after being suspended.
James has reportedly been told that he will be excluded from the festive edition of the ITVBe show as producers debate whether the reality star should be allowed to return at all.
A source said: "Producers have told Arg he will not appear in the December one-off."
The insider added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It remains to be seen if he will be back for the next series, but he is at least sitting out the rest of this year."
The 26-year-old Essex lad was originally banned from 'TOWIE' amid claims he'd failed a drugs test in October.
Shortly before the accusation of drug taking broke, Arg was spotted arriving in Ibiza for the 'TOWIE' spin-off 'The Only Way Is Ibiza' covered in what looked like his own vomit.
Despite his rumoured absence from the Christmas special, the wannabe singer has been keeping his spirits up by learning how to drive and keeping fit in the gym.
Earlier this week (18.11.14), he wrote on Twitter: "Be afraid, be very afraid! I'm back on the road and not giving up this time! @noelgaughan is a brave man!! (sic)"
