TOWIE's James 'Arg' Argent and James 'Diags' Bennewith endured a terrifying taxi ride as they got pranked for the latest episode of Tricked.

Arg and Diags had a ride to remember and nearly crashed into a fence as magician Ben Hanlin conjured up some mischief on the unsuspecting reality stars.

In the episode to air tonight (14 November), Arg and Diags jump in a taxi back to Essex but are taken on a detour when the taxi driver, played by Ben, says that he has something to show them.

Before they know it, Ben has climbed out of the taxi while it is still moving. Disaster appears to strike as Ben falls to the ground leaving the taxi, with seemingly no driver in control of the vehicle, just meters away from crashing into a fence!

As the taxi continues to go at full speed, Arg and Diags release their seat belts, but are unsure of what to do!

Arg says to Diags, "I don't know how to drive mate." While Diags continually responds, "What the f*** are we supposed to do?"

Ben tells Arg and Diags that they have been tricked

Only when the taxi is seconds away from the fence does Ben magically reappear!

After finding out it was all one big trick, Arg said: "I was panicking, I was really scared because I can't drive. I was thinking, should I attempt to stop the car? Should I attempt to jump out?

"I think we just gave up thinking that we would crash but hopefully not get hurt. We weren't very brave in the situation really."

Ben recently played a trick on Arg's friend Helen Flanagan where she thought she saw a ghost while on a photo shoot.

Tricked continues tonight (Thursday 14 November) at 9pm on ITV2.
