TOWIE's James 'Arg' Argent feels there is romance blossoming between Joey Essex and his I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! co-star Amy Willerton.

Arg, who is good friends with Joey, spoke to him on the phone last night (9 December) and has concluded that love could be on the cards for his pal and model Amy.

Earlier today, Joey shared a picture of himself and Amy getting seriously cosy on a sun lounger in Australia and another of them enjoying room service together.

Speaking about the pair, Arg tells Reveal: "I think he likes her, I really think he likes her.

"I don't think either of them would want to let their feelings show on camera, but I think they're getting on really well now they're out of the jungle.

"She's a pretty girl and seems really nice. We'll have to see what happens!"

Joey is due to return to the UK on Wednesday and Arg is very much looking forward to having his friend back on home soil.

"We're going to throw him a welcome home party when he gets back," Arg reveals.

"He did so well, but I was shocked he left on Friday (6 December). I thought he was going to win the show.

"I told him on the phone that I think people thought he was a sure thing and safe, so didn't vote. Similar things happen on The X Factor and the favourites can end up being voted out."

Lucy Mecklenburgh comes face to face with Mario Falcone's ex, Pascal Craymer in TOWIE's festive episode, The Only Way Is Essexmas.


On Wednesday, Arg will appear in the TOWIE Christmas special, The Only Way Is Essexmas.

He adds: "We all went and stayed in a log cabin in Norfolk and it was so much fun! We obviously missed Joey being there though."

Arg is currently promoting Pizza Hut's new look Crawley restaurant, which marks the start of a £60 million investment in the chain.
