Arg is back on TOWIE.

A rep for the show confirmed to The Sun: "James has now returned to filming having completed a period of suspension.

Arg, 27, was suspended from the smash reality show in October last year following allegations of excessive partying that had spun out of control. Producers took action following two high profile incidents, one of which saw Arg being filmed with vomit over his clothing after reportedly becoming drunk ahead of a flight.

A separate incident saw Arg sparking a police manhunt after failing to turn up for a flight. Missing people's bulletins were displayed on major news channels before it was revealed he was safe and had been asleep in a hotel.

Relive Arg's TOWIE journey!

Arg has been a member of the TOWIE cast since day one, starting the show alongside the likes of Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger.

Just before Christmas, he checked himself into The Priory rehab clinic, spending the festive period getting treatment. Ever since, he's been working hard to clean up his act and embrace a healthier lifestyle.

Earlier this month, his on-off girlfriend Lydia Bright said she was hopeful Arg would return to the show soon, saying: "He's doing really well. We're all hoping and praying he'll come back at some point during the series."

And Arg himself thanked fans this week for campaigning for his return.

It's believed Arg will be seen on tomorrow night's episode of the show, which airs at the special time of 10.20pm on ITVBe.
