The cast of The Only Way Is Essex have taken inspiration from last month's infamous Oscars selfie by taking their very own group photo!

James 'Arg' Argent took the lead last night as he gathered his co-stars Jessica Wright, her mum Carol, Charlie Sims, Ferne McCann, Lewis Bloor, James Lock, Tom Pearce and Nanny Pat for the shot.

At the 86th Annual Academy Awards last month (2 March), host Ellen DeGeneres caused social media frenzy after uploading a selfie featuring a bunch of A-listers, but Arg reckons the TOWIE selfie might just top it!

Captioning the photo, Arg said: "At my book launch party for Living it Arg but forget the Oscars, it's all about this - the ultimate TOWIE selfie!!"

The reality stars were out in force last night for Arg's book launch of his first ever tell-all autobiography, Tales, Tantrums and TOWIE: Living It Arg.

'Dance All Night' singer Jess, who had earlier spent her evening at a lingerie party in London, tweeted about close friend Arg: "Now on way to @RealJamesArgent book launch very proud x x."

Does the TOWIE selfie rival this Oscars one?!

In Arg's book, he goes into detail about his "passionate" kiss with co-star Amy Childs, while he was dating Lydia Bright at the time.

In February, Arg told Reveal that his revelations will leave fans shocked. "The boys' banter chapter is hilarious," he said. "Some of the stuff we get up to on our holidays will leave people gobsmacked.

"It's about me growing up as a child. So losing my virginity to my ex girlfriend Lydia and falling in love with her. Also, how I became best friends with Mark Wright and then years later joining The Only Way Is Essex. My life completely changed from being a normal Essex boy to starring on a BAFTA award-winning TV show and hanging around with celebrities."
