Essex favourite Arg was reunited with his girlfriend Lydia Bright in the Spanish city on Thursday (24 September) after flying out late due to his work on a top secret ITV documentary.
Arg was ecstatic to be reunited with Lydia, and so was she, gushing via social media: "My prince has finally arrived in Marbs."
She later added: "So happy my @RealJamesArgent has joined us in Marbella for TOWIE. Really missed him."
However, Arg tweeted this morning that his fun in the sunshine has come to an end: "Finally landed to #Marbs yesterday but back home again tonight! Missed my @lydiarosebright so much!"
Talk about making a quick stop off!
A rep for the show tells us that it's nothing to do with the twist (where half of the cast will be sent home early), it just so happens that Arg has left Marbs early "due to other commitments".
Yesterday, Arg and Lydia made a picture perfect couple as they celebrated Jessica Wright's 30th birthday at her cousin Elliott's restaurant, Olivia's La Cala.
They also got glammed up for filming at Cavalli Club and looked totally in love as they gazed at each other while holding hands.
The new series of TOWIE returns on Sunday 4 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
