TOWIE’s James ‘Arg’ Argent has denied reports he’s been axed from the show saying he’ll be back.
The 29-year-old, who is one of the original members of the show, took to Twitter to say he ‘definitely hadn’t been axed’ and would be back soon.
The star was responding to reports that he had been cut from the remainder of the current series having just returned from rehab.
There were also reports his future on the programme had been in question.
A spokesperson for the star said: ‘We are pleased that James is home and that he’s made such positive progress, however we have mutually agreed that he should take some further time before he returns to TOWIE fully.’
The Essex lad recently returned home from Thailand where he spent a 10 week stint in rehab.
In the past Arg has been open about his battle with anxiety and drink problems and it is thought he has also previously spent time at The Priority rehab clinic.
The Essex reality TV show is currently on its 20th series and it hasn’t failed to deliver the usual drama.

Oh and Jodie Marsh get angry about the show’s promotion of puppy farming – all off-screen, on Twitter, we should add.
But it’s only a matter of time until we see Arg himself.
