TOWIE star James Argent is feeling slightly embarrassed after video footage emerged of him appearing drunk after his recent flight to Ibiza.

The loveable Essex star was left red-faced after over indulging on a delayed flight to the White Isle earlier this month – and now footage of the star being escorted off the plane in Ibiza has been published by The Mirror.

Oh dear.

After seeing the video, an embarrassed Arg tweeted: "Cringing at video. In my defence it ended up being a 7 hour flight and we were all going stir crazy. Been v good since then - no partying for me in Ibiza! (sic)."

A source told Reveal that the star had been true to his word in Ibiza, partying in moderation and getting plenty of fresh air and exercise. Pictures were published this week showing him doing some boxing training with Dan Osborne and James Lock.

He's also been spending plenty of time with ex-girlfriend Lydia Bright, fuelling fan hopes of a romance blossoming.

Even Lydia's own mum Debbie Douglas seems to think that's a possibility, tweeting at us recently: "2014 version of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton can't live with each other and can't live without @LydiaRoseBright and ARG."

Arg has been hanging out with Lydia in Ibiza.

Arg had been flying to Ibiza to film scenes for the 13th series of TOWIE, which kicks off next month on new channel ITVBe.

The highly anticipated new series will return with two episodes filmed in Ibiza, the first of which airs on 8 October.

That will be followed by a one-off show hosted by Arg's best friend, former TOWIE star Mark Wright.

Mark and TOWIE narrator Denise Van Outen will broadcast live from Sugar Hut in Essex, interviewing the cast and giving us behind the scenes goss from Ibiza.

Meanwhile, in other Arg news, he was forced to publicly apologise earlier this month after he was reported missing following a failure to catch a scheduled flight to Majorca.

A plea for his return was played on live TV and the hashtag 'Pray4Arg' began trending.

It later transpired that Arg had gone to the wrong airport to catch his flight and his phone had run out of battery meaning he was unable to contact anybody.

Arg later tweeted: "Hi, I'm so sorry to have worried everyone. I'm fine and safe but again can't apologise enough x."
