TOWIE's Joey Essex and James 'Arg' Argent added another memorable moment to their Las Vegas holiday yesterday by meeting boxer Mike Tyson!

The two reality TV stars are currently in Sin City filming special episodes for the new series of The Only Way Is Essex and they've been getting up to all sorts of mischief since touching down on US soil.

Not only have they enjoyed a pool party and some customary gambling, Joey and Arg have now added a meet and greet with retired professional boxer Mike Tyson to their long list of antics.

On Sunday (29 September), Joey posted a snap of himself, Arg and Mike on Twitter and excitedly wrote: "Me, @RealJamesArgent and the one and only @MikeTyson #VegasBABYYYY".

And Arg sounded just as chuffed to have met the legendary ex athlete, as he wrote to Joey: "So amazing to meet the baddest man on the planet! #IronMike #Hangover #TOWIV x"

But these two weren't the only Essex natives to bump into Mike in Vegas, since fellow cast member Ricky Rayment also proudly posed for a snap with him last week.

Ricky admitted to being totally overwhelmed by his run-in with the Mike and even appeared to strike up a little friendship with the boxing star too.

He tweeted: "Never been so startstruck in my life!! Mike f**king Tyson!!! Had a full on convo with him and invited us to his show!"

We wonder whether this means that the upcoming series of TOWIE is taking inspiration from the popular Hangover films, in which Mike famously made an appearance? We wouldn't be surprised!

As well as rubbing shoulders with celebs, Joey and Arg have been partying non-stop with their co-stars.

Over the weekend, the pair hooked up with Joey's cousins Chloe and Charlie Sims, Lauren Pope and Mario Falcone for some clubbing.

We're getting more and more excited to see what really went down in Vegas when TOWIE returns to our screens this Sunday (6 October).
