The missing star of The Only Way Is Essex James Argent is expected to appear in the next season of TOWIE due to be aired on new channel ITVBe in October.

Since then he has seen his stock rise including collecting the show's Bafta Audience Award in 2011, amassing 1.4 million followers on Twitter and appearing on a host of chat shows.
In 2012, he completed the London Marathon in a little over six hours in aid of Cancer Research.
