TOWIE's James 'Arg' Argent has wished girlfriend Gemma Collins lots of luck following her exit from the show.

GC announced today that she was quitting The Only Way Is Essex to pursue other projects, rumoured to include possible stints in either CBB or I'm A Celebrity (again).

Arg and Gemma have been through a lot in the past.

After hearing the news, her ex Arg took to Twitter, writing: "All the best and good luck for the future GC. Great service to Only Way Is Essex." He then cheekily added the hashtag, "You ain't ever gonna get this candy", a reference to one of Gemma's most memorable scenes on the show which also involved him.

That was at a pool party in Marbs way back when Gemma and Arg were all on-off. GC felt Arg hadn't been treating her with respect so Gemma marched into the party, stripped to her swimsuit and declared: "Don't ever disrespect a girl like that again. Take a good look at this. You ain't ever going to get this candy."

It's still one of the best TOWIE scenes EVER!

Relive it below!

Arg – who is now back together with 'soulmate' Lydia Bright – apologised to Gemma for his past behaviour on an episode of TOWIE in March. He made amends after entering rehab over Christmas to curb his party lifestyle.

"I feel you're one of the main people I hurt. I'm here because I want to make amends and say how sorry I am. I think when I was going through the start of my dark phase, it started before we started seeing each other.

"When I was in a bad place you showed me so much love and attention and affection. I know how much you loved me and cared about me. I needed someone to look after me. I feel I took advantage of how much you loved and cared about me.

"My selfishness and actions obviously had a big effect on you. Looking back on it now I should have kept you there as a good friend. I shouldn't have played with your emotions, given you mixed signals and strung you along. I hope you forgive me and understand."

Gemma said she was happy to see Arg in a good place.

Gemma replied: "I'm crying because I'm happy for you, that you're in this place. You've made my day." Arg later called her a friend for life.

Fashion designer Gemma confirmed her exit this morning, saying: "I've had a blast on The Only Way Is Essex. Thank you Lime Pictures, ITV and especially the fabulous fans."

She hasn't confirmed what she will be doing next but rumours have been swirling she could enter I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! for a second time, following her infamous stint on the show last year when she only lasted three days.

Gemma herself has said she'd love to redeem herself and she's now in a better position in life to cope with the jungle environment. And, with CBB starting on Channel 5 this week, there have also been whispers we could see her on that show.
