While his girlfriend Lydia Bright has been sunning it up in Marbs, Arg has been away working on a new project, which sees him getting in front of a different kind of camera.
The good news, is that Arg should be joining the cast, but just at a later date.
Sharing a sad selfie via Instagram on Monday night (21 September), Arg said: "Gutted and sad that I'm not in #Marbs yet with the rest of the gang, miss them so much! Filming a new Factual/Ob Doc show for @itv #BeBackSoon."
A rep also confirmed to Reveal: "Arg will be joining the rest of the cast out in Marbs soon for TOWIE filming."
Most of the cast flew out to Marbs over the weekend to kick off filming for the brand new 16th series.
We've already seen the girls pose up a storm on their way to filming, and the boys getting ready for a pool party, so no doubt Arg will be able to join in on the action soon!
TOWIE returns on Sunday 4 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
