The reality favourite was left "cringing" when video footage appeared online showing him looking slightly worse for the wear while being escorted off a flight.
Chatting with BBC Newsbeat, the star admitted his flight had been delayed, meaning he'd started drinking alcohol at the airport before boarding.
"We started drinking relatively early and with the altitude and all that, it became quite embarrassing and cringey. Just typical Arg, I guess," he said.
"I'm sure most people have got pissed and got a bit sick or got drunk on a plane, but if I do it I get caught."
After the video first emerged, a sorrowful 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 Arg had cut down on the partying in Ibiza, switching massive nights out for drinking in moderation and working on his fitness with co-stars Dan Osborne and James Lock.
We'll see exactly what happened in Ibiza when the new series of TOWIE premieres on Wednesday, 8 October on new channel ITVBe.
