TOWIE's James 'Arg' Argent really surprised us when he appeared on Good Morning Britain.

The reality star was on the GMB sofa talking about the new series of TOWIE which returns on Sunday.

Original cast member Arg said: "I've been here since series one, episode one, five and a half years... Still ain't be offered nothing else, that's why I'm still here!"

Of course, Arg has been offered other shows, as he's only just recently finished competing on The Jump.

But wait, there's something missing - Arg didn't say he was the 'Ian Beale of TOWIE'!

Arg has been known to compare himself to the iconic EastEnders character A LOT, and we were just waiting for the words to come out. But surprisingly, they didn't.

FYI, as we argued last year, Arg pretty much is the Ian Beale of TOWIE. We've seen his highs and lows, his romance with Lydia Bright and bromance with Mark Wright (we miss MARG!), as well as his position as the entertainer of the group.

But five years on, and the much-loved cast member is still enjoying his time on the show. "Time's gone quick, it's mad," he added. "We're still here, still going strong and we're still loving it."

Speaking about The Jump, Arg said: "I'm getting flashbacks now! I really enjoyed it, it was an amazing experience. I think I was quite fortunate in the fact I was quite big boned, it was padding to save me from getting hurt. It's the most dangerous reality TV show going."

The new series of TOWIE airs on Sunday 28 February at 10pm on ITVBe.
